Earth Diaries: Kathog Pageant

Posted on 2/28/2017 2:27:00 PM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

This episode of Earth Diaries targets Eastern Tibet and the spiritual celebrations and practices of the region. In one ceremony, a large congregation of monks and citizens band together to carry a colorful tapestry called a thangka up a grassy mountainside. They form a line and snake through the landscape with the heavy fabric placed carefully on their shoulders. Once gaining adequate altitude, the group unfurls the masterful depiction of Buddha, and gather to gaze upon its immensity. The scene is breathtaking: dozens of people treasuring nature and divinity in unison.

Produced by Cynthia Younker
