Storyline

Lost in time, the Himalayan Kingdom of Mustang is one of the last sanctuaries of authentic Tibetan Buddhist culture. But, long isolated by geography and politics, the people struggle to survive and the center of their culture, the fifteenth century monasteries and the art within are dangerously close to collapse. Mustang - Journey of Transformation, tells the compelling story of the efforts to rescue this ancient place from the brink of extinction and help spark a cultural renaissance. Storytellers include His Holiness the Dalai Lama; the King of Mustang; and Luigi Fieni, the chief art restorer. Written by Kass, Sarah

Beautiful insight to Mustang, but very short
27 November 2012 | by spam_nimishSee all my reviews

Mustang deserves an excellent documentary. Though, Richard Gere's narrative and Dalai Lama's interview are welcome additions, the lack of details of the transformation make this documentary very much incomplete. Though, for viewers unfamiliar about this Forbidden Kingdom, this is a definite watch, if Tibetan Buddhism and culture make you curious.

There is a better PBS show which provides much more details of how they carried out the restoration of the monasteries. This mini-documentary just provides beautiful views of the before and the after states.

However, the visuals are stunning and the music is a good mix of Tibetan tunes with light western scores.
