Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
In 1865, British authorities enlisted Nain Singh Rawat-an Indian pundit, or explorer-to map the mountain passes of Tibet. Forty years later, Singh's work helped a British army officer named Francis Younghusband lead a military expedition to the city of Lhasa, bringing an end to Tibet's isolation and forcing the Anglo-Tibetan Treaty upon the country. This documentary recounts those decades of adventure and the resulting cultural clashes that transpired on the rooftop of the world. It combines archival images and materials with modern color footage of a land that still inspires mystery and a yearning for high-stakes exploration. Interviews with historians and experts on Tibet are included.
