In spite of everything, cultural life continues.
Photo Kathmandu has just finished it’s run, and the Film South Asia festival is upcoming. Very exciting is the Nepal Premiere of a documentary by friends Amy Benson + Scott Squire and Ramyata Limbu called Drawing the Tiger. If you find yourself in Patan, Kathamndu on November 21st, go see the screening at Rato Bangela School!
The documentary was shown at the Cork Film Festival in Ireland, my sister Maeve went to see it and although heart-wrenching, was well worth watching.
I have not yet seen it and will miss the screening at Film South Asia, but fortunately the documentary has also been accepted for Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival so I’ll be able to see the screening in Kathmandu on December 10th.
Might I see you there?
