Description

For centuries the only medical system accessible to people in Ladakh was the Amchi, the traditional doctor following ‘Sowa Rigpa’, Tibetan medicine. 84% of Ladakh’s population lives in villages and rural areas in the mountains which are difficult to reach. There are no hospitals or clinics.

We follow amchi Karma Chodon on a journey into the wilderness of the Himalayas where she will meet her students for the last time. Although she has passed on the traditional knowledge to the next generation, the film questions the future of the amchi tradition which is threatened with extinction.

Although made in difficult circumstances, this is a unique documentary of a way of life which may soon disappear.

English sub-titles.
