An Awakening

An Awakening

Directors: John Seddon, Vaibhav Kaul - UK (2017) 14'

A passionate pursuit of the 'mountains'. A poetic peek into a sentimental world. Far away from hearth, home and heritage, a young Himalayan scholar is faced with physical disablement and desolation. As he takes on his 'mountains', he finds solace in his spirituality, ethnic identity, and love for the wilderness. Shot in northern England on the ancient Asian spring and new year festival of Nauróz, this impressionistic ethnography brings together poetic images, words and sounds to reveal the essence of the young highlander's being.
