After already presenting some amazing movies and documentaries on the platform with 'RocKabul', 'A Punk Daydream' or 'Soaring Highs And Brutal Lows', THE PIT (aka the first ever SVOD platform dedicated to the ROCK & METAL universe), unveiled a new astonishing content with 'Growling Mountains', available right now on the platform.

In Nepal, the metal scene is thriving. From its beginning at the end of the 90s, where only a few bands existed, the scene has spread to around forty active bands. The film - directed by the Frenchwoman Aurore Laurent - meets five of them and actors of that underground movement. A generation of Nepalis who wants to get emancipated from traditions and violences that the country has known the last twenty years..

Aurore Laurent is working in Nepal since 2007 where she co-directed 2 documentaries with Adrien Viel. In 2011, they released Aadesh Baba: So be it and Three Shamans in 2014, a documentary about shamans of Nepal in three different ethnic groups. That same year they released a book of photography and text about shamans of Nepal, with the publishing company Naïve Livres.

Along with Adrien Viel, a collection of filmed shamanic rituals is also available online. Invested in transmission and sharing, Aurore Laurent teaches editing and is also a video editor on various projects when she is not filming. 'Growling Mountains' is her first film directed in solo.
