The Wall of Shadows

Eliza Kubarska, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, 2020o

s
vBack

A Sherpa family is approached by a group of mountaineers to lead a trek across the sacred mountain of Kumbhakarna in Nepal and faces a dilemma. The father wants to earn the money necessary for his son's education. But the mother is against climbing the body of God. In order to make her son's dream of becoming a doctor possible, she finally agrees to lead the three foreigners up the mountain.

Dans le passé, les films d'alpinisme de la région himalayenne se sont surtout concentrés sur les expéditions occidentales. Ce documentaire, en revanche, est consacré à la vie d'une famille népalaise dont le père travaille comme sherpa. Les parents sont tiraillés entre la dépendance aux expéditions et l'émancipation à offrir à leur fils pour qu'il puisse espérer une vie différente. Une histoire sensible avec pour toile de fond la montagne sacrée Kumbhakarna.
