Abstract:

This film takes us to a remote part of Yunnan province in China where the Lisu people have lived for generations in a village carved out of a steep mountain gorge. Their only contact with the outside world is made by crossing a wild, rushing river. They matter-of-factly use a rope to tie themselves to a pulley which traverses a slender cable over the gorge. We watch them negotiate this aerial transport laden with wares bound for market. Even the village teacher, his body dangling over the turbulent river, is transported in this fasion. The Lisu cheerily battle the elements to go about their daily tasks raising rice and corn and keeping livestock. Although it is a challenging lifestyle, their mutual support and close family ties sustain their spirits.
