On the Wild Plateau

This is the Tibetan Plateau. 5000 meters above sea level, known as "the roof of the world".  With the mountains and rivers worshipped, it's one of the most spiritual places on earth. The film aims to reveal a special bond between local herdsmen and the wildlife.

My best documentary film, and the most strenuous one. Every crew member was hit by high-altitude sickness. I was watching the most stunning scenery on earth with the worst headache and shortest of breath.  Being the only female and the leader of the crew, my role was not without challenges.
