Film as pilgrimage: Zhang Yang’s semi-documentary follows a group of Tibetan villagers on their 1200 km walk to Lhasa, pausing every few steps to prostrate themselves on the ground in an act of devotion. This is a truly Buddhist film. Renounce dramatic expections, surrender to contemplation and open yourself to transcendence.
