Event Details

"Part travelogue, part spiritual quest... a filmic fusion of the outer and inner journeys riders experience, taken to the physical and mental extremes." ~ Susan Carpenter, Los Angeles Times

After the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, most of us feel for the people, the communities and the enormous effort to rebuild the country. Some of us have been there others just feel connected as part of humanity.  The Highest Pass Film is a documentary of spirit, culture, landscape and in keeping with the region adventure. It connects us to the region, the culture and the journeys that take place there.

"The Highest Pass is within us. This journey is to realize that."

Come and join us for a great night to raise funds to support the Nepal Earthquake Appeal: at the Australian Film Premiere of "THE HIGHEST PASS". Followed by a  Q&A conversation afterwards with Nepal locals, giveaways, raffle prizes to win including Massages, Singing Bowls and more; and a few other suprises. We'll be at three cities in June/July SydneyMelbourne and Brisbane. Thanks to Singbowl.com.au and In Good Hands for prizes to raffle on the night!

 About "The Highest Pass" Film:

 

DATE

SYDNEY: Wednesday 24 June 2015 (6.45pm for 7pm sharp start)

"Soon after Adam Schomer meets a modern yogi and guru, Anand Mehrotra, they plan an expedition through the highest passes of the Himalayas in Northern India. These are some of the most dangerous roads in the world, yet they manage to assemble a team of seven motorcycle riders to share in what will become the journey of a lifetime.


These riders and Adam, who learned to ride two weeks before the trip, are guided by the inspiring teachings of Anand who bears the burden of a Vedic prophecy that predicts he will die in his late twenties in an accident. He is that age now, yet leads with a fearlessness and wisdom that reminds us that “Only the one who dies, truly lives.”


But wisdom in words and wisdom in practice can be very different indeed, especially when riding along the sheer icy edges of Himalayan cliffs. The bikers ride on that edge, navigating dirt, gravel, snow, ice and the onslaught of loaded trucks, known as “road killers”, as they journey for 21 days towards the highest motorable road on earth. It is a pass open only three months a year and at a height 18,000ft, is on par with Everest base camp. Low oxygen, altitude sickness, river flooded roads, and a constrictive fear all live along this one lane road.


Yet they choose this path to seek Ladakh, the land known as the Little Tibet. Why this path? Because it’s a road that leads to incredibly isolated mountain lakes, ancient monasteries, inside the knowing eyes of a mystic oracle, and ultimately deeper into themselves…


It’s amazing that their guide himself is battling a prophecy and yet is determined to ride one of the hardest roads in the world. It is both haunting and inspiring. It brings up our worst fears and our deepest courage. Adam must ask if the possibility of a spiritual breakthrough worth the risk of serious injury or death? Will it help us all understand what it means to live our lives?


This adventure cracks the foundations we think we stand on. And in this case, the foundation is a one lane road winding through the Himalayas. The Highest Pass."
