For those that thought the romantic picture of the snow-capped Himalayan peak was permanent, this is a rude wake-up call. Global warming is starting to impact dangerously on one of the most beautiful and distant parts of the world.
This film follows a UN trip to look at the glacial melt that is forming huge lakes behind moraine dams. Effectively a ticking time bomb, these lakes contain up to 30 million tonnes of water and the film highlights the people on the front line of this imminent flood disaster – the Nepali people themselves. True to the usual Slackjaw style this film is both personable and provocative in equal measure.
