New York, NY - December 10, 2013 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of Himalaya, a film by Éric Valli which won Cesar Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Original Score and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 72nd Academy Awards® in 1999. Himalaya was a huge box office hit in Europe, and also enjoyed great popular success in the U.S., where it remained on theVariety top film box office chart for over six months.
Kino Lorber brings Himalaya to Blu-ray and DVD, remastered in high definition and presented in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. The Blu-ray and DVD are set to street on December 31, 2013, with a SRP of $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $29.95 for the DVD. Special features include audio commentary with director Éric Valli; a 26-minute "making of" documentary; and the electronic press kit.
Filmed over seven months in the forbidden Dolpo region of Nepal, Himalaya tells the story of a generational struggle for the leadership of a tiny mountain village between its proud old chief and a headstrong young caravanner. The balance of power shifts uneasily as they make their annual salt trek across the Himalayas.
A visually striking and spiritually captivating portrait of life in one of the world's most extraordinary places, Himalaya is both intense drama and a gorgeous tapestry of the fast disappearing traditions of Tibetan life.
