Travellers and Magicians < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Khyentse Norbu
Feature Film • 108 minutes • Australia / Bhutan

Khyentse Norbu’s follow-up to his audience favorite The Cup is the first feature film ever shot in the tiny kingdom of Bhutan. One of Himalayan Buddhism’s most revered lamas, Khyentse (aka Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche) weaves parallel fable-like tales about two men who seek to escape their mundane lives in Travellers & Magicians. Missing the bus, one man hitchhikes with an elderly apple seller, a sage young monk, and an old man travelling with his beautiful daughter Sonam. Along the way, the perceptive yet mischievous monk tells him a story of another young man who sought a land far away: a tale of lust, jealousy and murder that holds up a mirror to the restless traveller and his blossoming attraction to the innocent Sonam. Travellers & Magicians is a magical mixture of rustic road movie and mystical fable...a potpourri of desire and its consequences, set in a breathtaking landscape.
