THE SALTMEN OF TIBET (Switzerland / Germany, 1997, 110 min.)

Observing age-old taboos and paying steadfast homage to the deities of the land and elements, four men meticulously plan and embark upon a grueling three-month yak caravan to fetch “the tears of Tara,” the precious salt from the holy lakes of northern Tibet. Director Ulrike Koch’s The Saltmen of Tibet is a breathtaking collage of image and sound – a majestic tribute to the purity of a landscape, people and tradition facing extinction (—International Buddhist Film Festival). In German and Tibetan with English subtitles. Directed by Ulrike Koch. Directed by Ulrike Koch.
