The movie, "Dolma la petite Khampa"
52-minute documentary, co-produced by the travel channel Ushuaïa TV. (French version only)
During a trip to Tibet, Mario Colonel photographs a child with a rebellious and mysterious look. Back home in Chamonix, he will realise that this portrait will exert a real fascination on all those who see it. Inhabited by this image, four years later, he decides to go in search of her. From monastery to nomadic camps, through the mountains, he takes us to a completely new Tibet. The still hazardous quest becomes an ode to this area still not very touristy. After two journeys, he will finally find this mysterious child. He finally realizes that this quest through this region of the Khan, located in the west of China, will also be a true initiatory journey, on the paths of humanity...
