HPU alumna films Reincarnation in Shrangri-La

by Kalamalama staff

Krystal Yan Wong, ’02, joins several other HPU alumni in being honored by the 2003 Hawaii International Film Festival for a world-premiere showing in Honolulu Nov. 2, at 6:30 p.m. and Nov. 3, at 3 p.m. at the Dole Cannery Signature Theatre No. 1.

 

Wong directed and produced the film documentary, Reincarnation in Shangri-La, and filmed it entirely in China.

The film is about one of the last truely matriarchal societies left in the world today, the Mosuo people of the mystical region of Shangri-La in China. According to Wong, it is “a unique depiction of a people in a world controlled by women, a world in which there are no marriages and no fathers."

The Mosuo people vigorously strive from birth to death “in strict reverence of their Gods, nature, and themselves,” Wong said.
