Travellers and Magicians

Directed by Khyentse Norbu

What better way to celebrate the 10th birthday of Bradford’s Bite the Mango film festival than with the latestoffering from the Buddhist monk director of THE CUP. Set again in the director’s native, tiny Himalayan country of Bhutan, it follows a handsome young government official stationed in a rural outpost of pristine beauty and kind, generous village neighbours. But Dondup has eyes for neither as he has his sights set on leaving Bhutan for apple picking in the States. An adventurous, emotional tour through the heartland of Bhutanese Buddhist culture.
