Nepal's mountains and reality in two videos
Two videos, Euphoria by Firdaus Hashim and 4.5 million seconds in Nepal by Artur Wyszecki offer a vision of Nepal, from Himalayan trekking to Everest and the complexities of everyday life.
Nepal isn't only about the Himalaya. Perhaps this may sound trivial , but we felt it useful to bring this to the forefront once again by presenting these two recent videos which go a long way in expressing this reality. The first deals with the trekking which leads up the Khumbu valley to Everest Base Camp. A classic and famous trek which has lost none of its charm: from Lukla to Nanche Bazar, from Ama Dablam to Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori and all the way to Everest you dive into a landscape which, with each step, makes you feel the immensity of the Himalayas. 26-year-old Malaysian Visual Effects Artist Firdaus Hashim is the man behind this film.
Despite depicting great views of the high Himalayan lands, the second video depicts Neal in its entirety, in its everyday life. This overwhelming and intense reportage was put together by Artur Wyszecki, of energiaOKA. Wyszecki originally intended to stay in Nepal for merely a week but in the end remained there for two months. In total 4.500.000 seconds, each of which, as he explained, were worth experiencing.
