The name of the film refers to a small region in the Himalayas. In fact, Shezad Dawood learnt about Kalimpong through the diaries written by the first Western woman who entered Tibet. When he came across the story of her expedition again in his 30's, Shezad Dawood got so inspired that he named the virtual world he created after it, a world where people can relive many stories.

That is exactly the sphere where VR exhibitions have the upper hand since they aim at destabilizing fix spaces – something that the attendees could try in person wearing the VIVE setup in the demo area.
