The Circle of Immortality is an artistic documentary depicting three locations in Nepal. Aspects of Tibetan Buddhism in Muktinath (High Himalayas – Nepal), Maratika (middle hills-Nepal) and Lumbini (low land Nepal) are displayed in short sections that run one into the other and back again symmetrically so that the timeframe of each location section pivots around a central point in the film that can be folded in half at the midway mark, thus portraying a cyclical movement of a spiral towards its central point, hence the title emerges, ‘The Circle of Immortality’.

Its inherent structure is based around the meaning of the five elements. Although much of the symbology is embedded in the visuals themselves as they progress through their interpretation of each individual element of wind, fire, earth, water and space in turn as well as collectively, the film portrays life and ongoing activities in each of these three places.
