Showreel of upcoming documentary about climate change on the Karakoram and Himalayan ranges.
Hidden among some of the tallest peaks in the world, Baltistan and the Hunza valley are historically, culturally and environmentally unique: the mountains here hold the largest amount of glacier water outside the Poles, and the locals’ livelihoods have been depending on it for centuries.
This region, on the border between Pakistan, China and India, is a prime example of the kind of irreplaceable human heritage that is at risk of being lost because of climate change. The film explores the local culture, its rich history, and its miraculously-successful symbiotic relationship with the mountains and the glaciers.
Filmed by Niccolo Piazza on RED Scarlet-X at 4K.
