Solastalgia

Solastalgia

Solastalgia—a form of existential distress caused by environmental change—is at the heart of this documentary essay film that reflects on climate crisis, nostalgia, and loss through the eyes of Serap, a Sherpa living in New York City, far away from his hometown in the Khumbu region of the Himalayas. While driving an Uber in Queens he gets lost in his memories of the mountains.

Directed by Gabriele Urbonaite (USA)
