PAD YATRA: A Green Odyssey

FREE & Open to the public 

PAD YATRA: A Green Odyssey is the harrowing adventure of 700 people, trekking across the Himalayas with a call to save the planet’s “3rd Pole,” a glacial region now devastated by the climate chaos associated with global warming. Battling the most treacherous terrain on earth, they spread their message of ecological compassion through human’s most basic means –by walking on foot, village to village, and showing by example. Barely surviving injuries, illness, and starvation, the trekkers emerge with nearly half a ton of plastic litter strapped to their backs, triggering an historic green revolution across the rooftop of the world. *Shot with solar power by Himalayan monk Ngawang Sodpa, the film features United Nations MDG Honoree the Gyalwang Drukpa, and Aamir Khan. 

The film is executive produced by Michelle Yeoh, narrated by Daryl Hannah, and it is the debut feature documentary from director Wendy J.N. Lee.
