Trailer for The Walking Hospital: Road to Lomanthang.
In Tim Farrell's stirring documentary, a small group of practitioners trained in an ancient form of Chinese field medicine embark on a rugged trek to their final destination of Lomanthang. Beginning in the crowded streets of Kathmandu, the healers, in the service of the Global Alternative Healthcare Project, ascend to remote mountain villages in Upper Mustang, a Nepalese enclave of the high Tibetan plateau. Armed only with bags of herbs and needles, the doctors battle the elements to offer urgent care to individuals isolated geographically and financially. Tim offers us an eye-opening story about health, healing and the powerful lessons of generosity that transcend borders and boundaries.
