Himalaya: Path to the Sky
Kenrap is eight years old. He is a Buddhist monk and lives in the Phukthal monastery on the peaks of the Himalayan mountains of Zanskar. Kenrap chose his life away from his family: when he was five, he remembered he was the reincarnation of a 68 year-old monk, and then decided to return to the monastery where he belonged.
Filmed from the point of view of a subjective camera by a young ethnologist, Path to the Sky follows this attaching little monk with whom we share moments of intimacy, and gives us a rare glance at Buddhist monastic life.
