This sumptuous new film tells the story of that fragile inheritance through the treasures of Bhutan and Ladakh in the Himalayas and of Dunhuang on the Silk Road in China. Efforts to save vulnerable wall paintings in these regions are contrasted with imminent threats of fire, flood, tourists, and devotional practice. The Getty Conservation Institute’s long-term involvement at the spectacular site of Dunhuang is featured in this documentary by award-winning filmmakers Mark Stewart Productions.
