Congratulations to Stephanie Spray, whose film Manakamana was chosen as New York Times writer Manohla Dargis’s 16 favorite films of 2013. The film takes the audience on a state-of-the-art cable car up and down one of the vast, awe-inspiring Trisuli valleys in Nepal, where the world-famous Manakamana Temple attracts pilgrims and tourists from around the world.

Spray was awarded multiple research grants from SAI to pursue her work in Nepal. She is currently a Ph.D candidate and Teaching Fellow in the Sensory Ethnography Laboratory, housed in the Anthropology Department at Harvard University.
