Kinnaur Himalaya
Emanuele Confortin
Italy, India / 2020 / 76' / Documentary / World premiere

Kinnaur is a district in the Indian Himalayas, home to spirits, exorcism and tall mountains, where the cult of the village oracle has survived. After centuries of isolation, in the last few decades the Kinnaur has had to cope with the challenges of rapid modernisation, which has upset the social equilibrium, replaced ancient farming activities and attracted thousands of migrants. The monoculture of apples is the most obvious transformation, but could be short-lived due to climate change.
