The 20-minute film, The Real Shangri-la is now finished. Here are some frames from the film, developed for WWF, the Shangri-la Institute for Sustainable Communities, and the Shangri-la Sustainable Communities Initiative.
The purpose of the film is to educate donors, members, and potential ecotourists. The theme revolves around the mystery of Shangri-la and Shambala, tying the fictional world of James Hilton's Lost Horizon and Nicholas Roerich's paintings to the real world here in Diqing Prefecture, Yunnan.
The film is much too long for this little travelpod (I tried). So here's one of many scenes. This scene is a fast-moving introduction to people and wildlife in the area.
