Let PAD YATRA: A Green Odyssey surprise you with it's heart, humor, and hope for an environmental crisis in the balance.
This is the harrowing adventure of 700 people, trekking across the Himalayas with a call to save the planet’s “3rd Pole,” a glacial region now devastated by the climate chaos associated with global warming.
Battling the most treacherous terrain on earth, they spread their message of ecological compassion through human’s most basic means –by walking on foot, village to village, and showing by example.
Barely surviving injuries, illness, and starvation, the trekkers emerge with nearly half a ton of plastic litter strapped to their backs, triggering an historic green revolution across the rooftop of the world.
Shot with solar power by Himalayan monk Ngawang Sodpa, the film features United Nations MDG Honoree The Gyalwang Drukpa, and Indian actor and environmental advocate, Aamir Khan. The film is executive produced by Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, James Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies), narrated by Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill, Bladerunner), and it is the debut feature documentary from director Wendy J.N. Lee.
Complete Cast and Crew list is available in the downloadable Press Kit.
