An actor turned environmental advocate, Jamyang, 40, visits disappearing glaciers in the Himalayas on his bicycle. Last year, he visited a potentially dangerous glacial lake in the Bhutanese Himalayas. Now he will bike and carry the messages of the communities living along the frontlines of climate change in the Hindu Kush Himalayas, to the COP28 climate summit in Dubai in December 2023. In Dubai he will present the story in a short video in partnership with ICIMOD, Nepal. 

According to new report, ice that took 2000 years to form at the South Col glacier on Everest has disappeared in the last 30 years. This calls for immediate attention to the Himalayan glaciers that will impact 1.9 billion people. The documentary will tell stories of eyewitnesses along the Everest region that have seen drastic change in their lifetime.

OUR APPROACH

The goal of this project was to acquire filming and drone permit. This was especially challenging since the filming was to be done at the Sagarmatha/Everest region. Additionally, the crew was coming through the India-Nepal border with their own equipment and exiting through Tribhuwan International Airport which meant that the custom clearance was all the more challenging. Our team of experts were, however, successful in arranging all the necessary documents and pushing through red tape right in time for the project to begin as scheduled. Threemm Films had less than two weeks to process the all the permit documents since the inquiry had come last minute. This did not demotivate the team at Threemm Films, instead, the team took a head on challenge to see the project through. With one of the most experienced fixers in Nepal, Threemm Films takes this as an added achievement in its long history of successful completion of filming projects in Nepal.
