Cultural life continues

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!

Drawing the Tiger

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?

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
