This is the story of an ancient culture tucked away in the largest mountains in the world. It is a rugged land, whose joyful people strive to sustain themselves under great odds. While the ART of Dying explores the transition to death as revealed in the ancient Tibetan scriptures and practiced through local customs (throughout the centuries), this work is more a celebration of life! The Danish filmmakers underwent great difficulties to capture contemporary rural Tibet from the Tibetan perspective. The creative photography is often startling in detail and delicately captures the majesty of the landscape to make this an absorbing work.
Tibetan customs can be as astonishing and complex as the immensity of the Tibetan land. The people of Tibet are shown here in the modern time warp in which they now live. The slow-moving scenes let one soak up the images of the extraordinary landscape, while the dialogue reflects the voice of the local people: simple villagers, the king of the remote village of Mustang, and Buddhist monks. Both young and old join together as the collective voice of Mustang. Anyone interested in Tibet, her people, and her culture will find this to be a deeply moving film.

The Art of Dying: Tibetan Voices from Mustang, A Munch-Jensen Film, DVD, 60 Min., 24.95, 1992.
