Il Tibet, chiusosi ermeticamente al mondo nel secolo XIX, fu aperto a forza dagli inglesi nel 1904, per tornare subito a richiudersi ancora più ermeticamente di prima. Solo negli anni Trenta cominciarono a presentarsi rare occasioni d’accesso per alcuni privilegiati. Giuseppe Tucci, uno dei nostri massimi orientalisti, seppe approfittarne più volte. Nelle sue spedizioni del 1937 e del 1948 ebbe come compagno Fosco Maraini, allora giovanissimo, che dalle sue note di viaggio trasse «Segreto Tibet», un libro che ebbe enorme successo e fu tradotto in dodici lingue. In un momento in cui film e libri di successo puntano il dito sulla terribile situazione di oppressione e di violenza in cui si trova il Tibet a causa dell’invasione cinese, questo libro straordinario ci fa sentire la voce autorevole e appassionata di uno dei primissimi testimoni di una straordinaria civiltà che rischia di scomparire.

«Sono un mercenario, e sono fiero di esserlo». A parlare è il colonnello FD 256323: questo il numero che gli hanno assegnato quando si è arruolato al servizio dell'«amministrazione», venti o trent'anni prima-non ricorda bene, e del resto chi lo conta più il tempo? Allora la terza guerra mondiale con le sue devastazioni nucleari aveva decimato l'umanità e reso inabitabile gran parte del pianeta, e i combattimenti si erano concentrati nel Tibet, «ad altitudini fantastiche, su ghiacciai, morene, dirupi, nei crepacci e sotto pareti a strapiombo», oltre che nello sterminato dedalo di gallerie scavate all'interno di poderosi massicci, dove feroci fazioni avversarie a sorpresa si incontrano e si massacrano…

In the barren landscape of remote western Tibet lies the ruins of a mysterious kingdom A kingdom whose capital was 3600 meters high on the Tibetan plateau. A kingdom that offers archaeological treasures that compare with Italy’s Pompeii. Once controlling the trade in gold, silk and spices between India and China, it was a kingdom of fabulous wealth and great religious significance. For two centuries it was the cradle of Himalayan Buddhism. Yet this spiritual and commercial hub, which prospered for seven centuries, vanished without a trace in 1630.

This film is being brought to television as a result of a BBC/British Film Institute co-production.

As members of the aristocracy and the Tibetan government in exile recall, the Tibetans world revolved around a series of colourful religious festivals, taking up 68 days of the year.
