Manakamana is the name of the sacred temple you will not see 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 the worshippers and tourists as they journey to and from the temple.

Each of the 11 shots lasts the duration of the Super 16 film roll it was shot on. Within this fixed time and space, each movement, small human interaction and even silence is amplified – the effect is profound, mysterious and mesmerising.

The Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University, which produced this film, has been described as “one of the most vital incubators of nonfiction and experimental cinema in the United States”.

This film won the Golden Leopard at the Locarno International Film Festival.
