The Knowledge of Healing
The Knowledge of Healing (1997) is arguably still the best film to illuminate the theory and practice of Tibetan medicine. Tibetan medical thinking (which is strongly rooted in Buddhist principles) views the human body as governed by an elaborately organized system of energies flowing through a network of channels.
Keeper of the Mountains
'Keeper of the Mountains' is a portrait of a woman who played an unlikely key role in the Golden Age of Himalayan mountaineering. Elizabeth Hawley defied the traditional gender roles of her day, settled alone in Kathmandu in 1960, and famously lived life on her own terms. Post-screening discussion with Phil Erard.
