Himalaya, a path to the sky I SLICE I Full documentary
Kenrap is eight years old. He is a Buddhist monk and lives in the Phuktal monastery on the peaks of the Himalayan mountains of Zanskar. Kenrap chose his life away from his family: when he was five, he remembered he was the reincarnation of a 68 year-old monk, and then decided to return to the monastery where he belonged. Filmed from the point of view of a subjective camera by a young ethnologist, this award-winning film follows this attaching little monk with whom we share moments of intimacy, and gives us a rare glance at Buddhist monastic life.
