A Crack in the Mountain (100 min)
Director: Alistair Evans
Deep in the jungle of Central Vietnam, lies a magnificent underground kingdom. Hang Son Doòng which translates as “mountain river cave, is located in Quang Bình Province. In the middle of a UNESCO world heritage site, it is the largest cave passage in the world and a place of spectacular beauty.
In 2014, plans were announced to build a cable car into the cave to attract tourism. The local community is divided over the economic benefit this would bring versus the potential destruction of the ecosystem.
The film investigates themes such as the challenges of modern-day exploration, environmental conservation and sustainability, and the challenges of being an activist. Beautifully shot and scored!
