Showings for PAD YATRA: A Green Odyssey

Directed by:  Wendy J.N. Lee
In the wake of freak climate disasters in the Himalayas, seven hundred people journey across the perilous mountain range on foot to educate villages on global warming and environmental preservation, triggering an activist movement never before seen in the region.
PAD YATRA is the adventure of seven hundred people trekking across the Himalayas to spread a call to action. With 15,000 glaciers, the Himalayas has fallen victim to a barrage of freak weather disasters caused by rapid glacial melting as global temperatures rise. Battling the harshest mountain terrain on the planet, the trekkers move village to village to educate locals on environmental preservation and living responsibly. Surviving injuries, illness, and starvation, the trekkers emerge with 800 lbs of plastic waste collected on their backs, having ignited an environmental movement never before seen in the Himalayas.
