Ladakh is an Indian region that is facing a deep process of transformation and cultural regeneration, constantly oscillating between its vocation of being a land of arcane and mystical traditions, and an uncontrolled progress that is destructive for the environment and is alienating its inhabitants. Brave and visionary minds are however working to overcome this dualism by proposing a virtuous mediation: preserving their identity without withdrawing into a shell, giving value to the incentives of a modernity that does not imply an anthropological mutation.

Language: English, Ladakhi

Subtitles: Italian
