About the Event
Nine-Story Mountain charts the path of three western researchers, from Lhasa to Mount Kailash, Tibet, on a journey to explore pilgrimage practices across the Tibetan plateau. Together, they set out to unearth the secrets of a mountain and landscape that have magnetized millions of people for centuries.
As some of the few westerners to make it into Tibet following a partial ban on foreign entry in summer 2012 they travel alone through an empty landscape, a landscape witness to changes most people will never have the chance to see. Armed with only a Canon Rebel 500D, an H2ZOOM, and an incredible Tibetan guide, they capture the stories of Tibetan nomads and teahouse owners, of Tibetan pilgrims, Hindu pilgrims, Chinese pilgrims, and a scattering of Western pilgrims. They capture the stories of Kailash, stories they believe can teach the world about what it means to coexist.
This is a story about a journey to reach Mount Kailash, the ‘nine-story’ mountain.
