A short documentary filmed at the Drigung monastery in Northern Tibet, Sky Burial follows a Tibetan lama carrying out a rarely-enacted ritual, part of an ancient tradition for burying the dead. The body of the deceased is offered as a sacrifice to be consumed by vultures – an act of benevolence towards nature. The Sky Burial is a way of returning the no longer needed physical body back to the universe from which it came.
