THE MEMORY OF THE YETI (2007)

Nwagi ChepangFrench film, Directed by Véra Frossard

Synopsis:

Filmed in Nepal, this documentary investigates the myths, legends and testimonies of the Sherpas about the yeti. There is a file in the Museum of Natural History in Paris on which is written "unknown species". This file contains a single hair that arrived from Nepal several decades ago. It is a yeti hair! So the question arises: did the yeti really exist or is it just a legend? "Like Karen Blixen, I could say: I once had a house in Nepal.
