"Spirit is a celebration of the human spirit, shot on location across Nepal in Kathmandu, Pokhara, at Pashupatinath temple, and at the Nagi Gompa, Namo Buddha, Tamang and Kanying Sherub Ling monasteries. The film’s action follows a community of nuns and monks, young and old, as they prepare for a major ceremony, and is based on a poem spoken from the perspective of a narrator questioning the nature of their own existence. Spirit debuted at the Future Shorts Spring Screening in Saigon on June 1st 2018, and has also since been featured on Directors Notes and Booooooom.
