Travellers and Magicians
"A film so enchanting one hates to see it come to an end" Los Angeles Times
From the writer / director of THE CUP, set amidst the pristine beauty of the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, the acclaimed TRAVELLERS AND MAGICIANS follows the restless Dondup, a handsome young government officer convinced that making money in America is the answer to his frustrations. As he hitchhikes towards his goal, he shares the road with a monk, a papermaker and his fair daughter, and an apple-seller. As they travel, the monk tells a tale that forces Dondup to question his desires.
