Short Film Profile

The Praying Machine

A Tibetan mountain. A thick winter morning fog. A temple, a top a set of infinite steps. A mechanic monk sets the pace for the frantic passers-by and pilgrims and times the exhausting climb of an old lady. But appearances are deceiving, everybody knows that, especially when the kingdom of men is so close to heaven.
