The Saltmen of Tibet

Four Tibetan men are followed by documentarian Ulrike Koch as they make their yearly spring voyage to Lake Tsento where they gather raw salt for the coming season. The 2000-year-old ritual is a rite of passage for Tibetan men, and Koch is given a rare opportunity to document the three-month pilgrimage. Along the way, the saltmen engage in Tibetan song, prayer and chant, following the same traditions as countless Tibetan saltmen who have made the trip in the past.
