Himalaya Film Festival Session 6

Rated NR


This is a story of a 17-year-old boy named Hari Rai, who lives in a small village in the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal, and his extraordinary journey. Hari is a student who also works as a porter in order to pay his university fees and living expenses at Management University in Pokhara. Although very young, he already has three years of experience carrying loads up and down mountains, mostly tourists' backpacks.


Stone Pastures tells the story of a nomadic family living on the Himalayan plateau of Chantang, Ladakh. In this cold high-altitude desert, the most inhospitable of environments, father Sonam, mother Phuntsok, old uncle Tsewang, and the boys Padma and Kunsang struggle rearing pashmina goats. This struggle contains a paradox: Ladakh's gritty, rocky conditions give rise to the finest of materials, pashmina wool. Produced by the nomads' goats as a warm undercoat, this is the raw material for luxurious Kashmiri shawls, and the family's only source of income.
