Film Details

Manakamana

United States | Nepal | 2013 | Stephanie Spray, Pacho Velez

Manakamana

Nepalese pilgrims (and a few animals) travel by cable car to a mountaintop Hindu temple in this mesmerizing new observational film from Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Lab (Sweetgrass, Leviathan). The movie is constructed from a series of static 10-minute takes (the duration of both the mile-and-a-half journey skyward and the roll of 16mm film used to record each trip) which capture an assortment of male and female passengers as they float past a changing landscape, ascend through the clouds, and arrive at their destination. "Five stars (highest rating)...Manakamana is often funny, but it also possesses a serious and sublime spirituality... You could hardly ask for a more beautiful vision of souls in transit." -Time Out New York. "A haunting experience that requires patience but that offers spiritual, philosophical, and aesthetic rewards beyond the immediate power of words to describe." -Boston Globe.
