Columbia Center for the Arts
Columbia Center for the Arts in conjunction with Sheer Madness Productions and Nathan Herbeck present the Hood River premiere of: “Bhutan – The Last Shangri-la”, March 9th at 7:30 p.m. The presentation includes a film and slideshow featuring filmmaker, Nathan Herbeck.
Bhutan, is located in South East Asia in the eastern Himalayas. This mountainous country is often referred to as the last Shangri-la (meaning: the last place of complete bliss, delight and peace). Bhutan is perhaps one of the least traveled places in the world, due to its very strict regulation of tourism and other travel into the country. This policy limits the number of tourists that enter through price controls and a government run airline. Filmmaker Nathan Herbeck is one of the very few to have visited and documented the country’s incredible beauty and culture.
With views of the Himalayas, visits to Buddhist monasteries and an exploration of the rich history of this tiny kingdom, Herbeck’s film & slideshow capture the pure beauty of a mysterious country.
Tickets are $10 and are available at Columbia Arts and Waucoma Bookstore and online at www.columbiaarts.org in advance and at the door. Columbia Center for the Arts is located at 215 Cascade Ave. in Hood River
