Our second shoot in the upper Arun Valley went surprising well. Every winter villagers from the north migrate south with medicinal and aromatic plants to sell. We captured one such annual migration with an incredibly gracious and accomodating young family. There were some last minute adjustments, a deal of dificulty keeping batteries charged, and some uncertainty about whether we would get to stop at the Barun River - where another annual event was taking place, a festival during which Nepalis far and wide travel to have a wash in the extremely cold waters of the river. But in the end, we are happy to report, filming went remarkably well! We are busy back at homebase logging the 40+ hours of footage we captured, getting started on transcriptions, and planning our next shoot coming very soon!
