Image from the film Manakamana
Manakamana is the name of the sacred temple that remains unseen in this observational documentary. Shot entirely in a cable car high above a Nepali jungle, the film is a study of portraiture and landscape, focused on worshippers and tourists as they journey to and from the temple. Each of the film’s 11 shots lasts the duration of the 16mm film roll it was shot on. Within this fixed time and space, each moment is amplified to a mesmerizing effect. In Nepali and English with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
