VIDEO Interview with Min Bahadur Bham, director of SHAMBHALA my pick for this year's Golden Bear


(A still of Thinley Lhamo from Shambhala by Min Bahadur Bham© Aditya Basnet / Shooney Films)  

By Lindsay R. ''Lulu'' Bellinger

Shambhala is a glorious exploration of womanhood, being true to one's self and determination. Thinley Lhamo's riveting and subtle portrayal of Pema is so gentle yet strong. I would not be at all disappointed if she won the Silver Bear for best leading performance. Pema becomes the wife of Tashi and his two younger brothers in the Nepalese Himalayas, and they live a happy and fulfilled life. Pregnant and without her husband she ventures out to find Tashi who is now missing after questioning the father of her unborn baby. The sheer vastness of terrain is remarkably shot by cinematographer Aziz Zhambakiyev and it is truly breathtaking. 
Min Bahadur Bham's film Shambhala is hands-down my pick for this year's Golden Bear. It will be a huge disappointment if it does not win the big award, but regardless it is a film that I would recommend to every cinemalover.
