A photographer and his assistant photograph the inhabitants of a remote Tibetan village.
“We rehearsed for about a week and shot for five days. All scenes were shot outdoors and there were many difficulties we encountered. Firstly, because it’s a short film and there aren’t specific filming permit for short films, our team encountered a lot of troubles and complications; especially for a team like ours, which consisted of foreign members.”
