Mountain Patrol (Kekexili)

Mountain Patrol (Kekexili)

Lu Chuan’s shattering, extraordinary, and critically acclaimed action-adventure epic was among the highlights of the Berlin, Tokyo, Sundance and London film festivals last year. A beautifully shot masterpiece of cinematic storytelling and an absolute ‘must’ for the big screen.

When Beijing journalist Ga Yu arrives at the mystical camp of the Kekexili Mountain Patrol, he witnesses a Tibetan funeral and a village in mourning. Ga Yu is determined to uncover the real story behind the mysterious disappearance of patrol volunteers, the killing of rare Tibetan antelopes and the rumour that the Mountain Patrol collaborates with the poachers.
