DRONAGIRI (2017 film)




VISUAL EXPRESSION OF 
CULTURAL EXPERIENCES 
THROUGH FILM
This project is an attempt to experience, understand a culture and express it visually (through film*).

-
In order to experience a particular culture I chose a remote village in Almore district of Uttarakhand called Dronagiri, which is located at a height of 11,800 ft. (3,600 meters) above sea level. 
The area has severe glaciers like the Bagini, Changbang and Neeti. and attracts tourists during the summer. People visit the place looking for rare herbs and to hunt musk deer and Himalayan bear, illegally. 
Around 400 Bhotiya families live in the village of Dronagiri. Uttarakhand Bhotiya are an ethno-linguistic group of people residing in the upper Himalayan valleys, Bhotiya name derives from the word ‘Bod’ which is the classical Tibetan name for Tibet. 

“People of Dronagiri migrate to lower altitudes during the severe winters.”
