MANAKAMANA  d Stephanie Spray and Pacho Velez (Nepal/USA, 2014, Nepali w English subtitles) 118 min

A remarkable experimental documentary, MANAKAMANA is shot entirely inside the narrow bubble of a cable car, high above a mountainside in Nepal, as it transports people to and from an ancient mountaintop temple. Comprised of 11 rides, each a single, static take, it is both an ephemeral character study of the passengers and a window on a culture in transition from ancient tradition to modernity. But ultimately, your vision, what you bring into the theatre with you, defines this film. Come for the ride. See what you think. Produced by the Sensory Ethnography Laboratory at Harvard, who are also responsible for the remarkable immersive films LEVIATHAN (2013) and SWEETGRASS (2008). "Austerely magical." Aaron Hillis, Village Voice. Grand Jury Prize, Locarno FF
