Capra’s glittering vision of paradise on Earth became so entrenched in the public imagination that ‘Shangri-La’ became a household word. The protagonists find themselves in this wonderland after a plane crash. The surrounding Himalayan Mountains protect them from the world outside, where the clouds of the Second World War are gathering, but the peace initially offered by Shangri-la soon proves to be deceptive.
Australian premiere of the 4K restoration.
