~ Cinema Ethnographic ~

We are pleased to present this very rare glimpse of various extraordinary places, events and people.  The clips are short for ease in downloading, but none the less if you don't have the luxury of a cable or other high speed internet connection... the download time and buffering may well be a source of frustration.  Our apologies, but at this stage there isn't much we can do about that... though I understand, having spent what seemed like an eternity uploading them to the web from here in Nepal.

For those with a fast connection, or others without but who do have the patience to wait for the download, we hope you enjoy these uncommon insights into the cultural vistas of the greater Himalayan region.

  ** At the moment, these video clips will only show up with the Microsoft Explorer web browser and with computers that have the Microsoft Windows Media Player installed.  I will try to expand compatibility to include other operating systems as soon as I am able.  The latest Media Player can be down loaded in versions compatible with all Windows Operating Systems as Well as Macintosh operating systems by clicking on this link: Windows Media Player for Various Operating Systems
