Trailer for 'Looking for a Lady with Fangs and a Moustache' from Nepal
"You don't have too much time left." Abramorama has unveiled an official trailer for a strange, mysterious Nepali film titled Looking for a Lady with Fangs and a Moustache, which is the perfect kind of title to grab your attention. This originally premiered in 2019 at film festivals, and was selected for last year's Tribeca Film Festival, now opening in cinemas worldwide starting in April 2021. The story follows a Tibetan entrepreneur in Nepal who experiences hallucinations, which a sage tells him are omens of his impending death. Filmed in a mesmerizing & magical Kathmandu, Tenzin will have seven days to save his life: a most unconventional, sacred journey into feminine energy. That sounds very cool. "I hope this film will transport audiences to a profound, mystical, and yet very real and accessible dimension of life with which our modern world is sadly and rapidly losing touch” states Khyentse Norbu. The film stars Tsering Tashi Gyalthang as Tenzin. This looks very unique and spiritual, and as someone who loves Nepal I am more than intrigued.
