[edit] Information

Likden is a trekking guide living in Skagam located 3,700 meters high in the Himalayan valley of Zanskar. After four years of negotiation with the bride's family, he is now getting married. The preparation of the ritual lasts 4 days and the Nyopas, the spiritual guides of the community, are responsible for the observance of the ancestral traditions. Even if the lifestyle in Skagam seems stuck in the past, the emergence of mobile phones and the internet is raising new hopes. Through this Himalayan wedding, this film shows the eternal confrontation between tradition and modernity. Gaelic title "Banais Zanskar".
