Shamans Of The Blind Country. Faith healing in North West Nepal 

Shamans of the Blind Country is an epic documentary on faith healing in a remote region of North West Nepal. 

Over a period of eighteen months the film follows the basic traits of a local religious practice, kindred in spirit to the many variations of the great inner-Asian tradition of shamanism characteristic for the Siberian part of Northern Asia and the entire Himalayan region.
