Lauded by critics as one of the films of 2014, "Manakamana" is a stunningly original and breathtaking visual experience. The Hindu temple of Manakamana is almost a mile above sea level. Instead of a lengthy journey on foot, worshippers can now take a 10-minute cable car journey up in to the mountains to pray at this sacred place. Using a 16mm camera, directors Stephanie Spray and Pacho Velez (Harvard University's Sensory Ethnography Lab) join a varied mix of subjects on their pilgrimage. The scenery is mesmerising, as are the characters - a diverse mix of commuters - from a group of old women discussing how much things have changed, a group of young men taking 'selfies', an elderly man and his grandson, a mother and daughter eating ice-creams, a married couple and their chicken and a herd of goats. Every shot follows a different set of passengers as we learn about them and their unique lives.
