DESIDERI

MASSIMO PREVEDELLO

Italy / 2001 / 50'

The documentary follows the main stages in the journey of the Jesuit, Ippolito Desideri, in Tibet in 1712 and his permanence in that country. He was the first European to cross the Karakorum chain, facing difficulties that today are unconceivable, and in winter he crossed the immense desert in western Tibet. Desideri learnt to speak and write in Tibetan and recorded in his “Report” the uses, customs and spirituality of the Tibetan world, with the first explanation of Lamaist Buddhism based on original texts.
