A Year in Tibet

How do you cure toothache in Tibet?

Tseden is a shaman who uses ‘spiritual healing powers’ to help sick villagers in Tangmai, Tibet. Tseden sees 20 to 30 patients a day, and in this video, we see him treat a woman with toothache by spitting at her, which he claims forces out the evil spirits that cause illness.

Isolated in the midst of the world’s highest mountain ranges, Tibet is one of the most remote places on the planet. With unprecedented filming access, this intimate travel documentary opens a window on the Tibetan town of Gyantse and its beautiful Baijin monastery, following the lives of people dwelling in this secretive, mysterious location. What challenges do Tibetan’s face, living in such a lonely part of the world?
