Himalaya Song is an experimental film with live narration and music, offering viewers a unique experience involving the convergence of film, new media technologies and live musical performance. This hybrid narrative multimedia performance uses storytelling, new media, and digital technology to examine the Himalayas as they undergo major environmental and ecological change. It is a vision of the future; a global project created by scholars, artists and animators. Audiences engage in an experience of the Himalayas and climate change through the story of Anya. It had its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was chosen as one of the Top 10 Music Films by Rolling Stone Magazine. The performance includes narration and video by Mridu Chandra and musical performances by Gingger Shankar (vocals and double violin) and Dave Liang (keyboards) of the electronic group The Shanghai Restoration Project. http://www.sundance.org/festival/festival-program/himalaya-song/
