Paths of the Soul
Cert: TBC Year: 2015 Length: 115 mins Language: Tibetan
For 1200km, the Tibetan pilgrims of Zhang Yang's extraordinary travelogue clap, drop face down to the road or gravel or mud, and then lift themselves up to walk a few steps and do it all again, on a pilgrimage to Lhasa, the holy capital. We see the simplicity of human relationships and the nature of family, suffering, and extraordinary determination.
Zhang shot for more than a year and also managed to secure approval from the Chinese government to make and distribute this film celebrating Tibetan spirituality.

The film is restful and exhausting, a contemplation of Tibet's epic-scale natural beauty, filmed with patience and intimacy, as each new horizon is a reward for the pilgrim's perseverance.
