Humane and mesmerising, Manakamana is a documentary shot entirely inside the narrow confines of a cable car, high above a jungle in Nepal, as it transports villagers and tourists to an ancient mountaintop temple. Filmed in 16mm and comprising 11 rides (each single take corresponds to the length of a roll of film), Manakamana is a gentle, ephemeral character study of its passengers and a window onto the lush, rolling landscape of a country in transition from ancient tradition to modernity.
