There are only three surviving lhapas, or Tibetan shamans, and since the Chinese occupation of Tibet have been living in a refugee camp in Nepal. In her film Fate of the Lhapa, director Sarah Sifers documents both their personal stories and their shamanic practices so the traditions will not be entirely lost. William Susman's score uses conventional western orchestral sounds integrated with indigenous instruments to create an atmosphere that amplifies the wonder, beauty, and melancholy of the film's story and imagery. The score is strong and directly communicative enough that it stands on its own musically and doesn't depend on the film's narrative and images to be appreciated. Its effectiveness has been affirmed in the awards it has received: the Seahorse Award at the 2007 Moondance Festival and the Gold Medal for Excellence for Best Impact of Music in a Documentary at the 2008 Park City Film Music Festival. –Stephen Eddins, All Music Guide 2007
