Setting off the Festival are two acclaimed films from Nepal, our focus country this year—
BIJULI MACHINE: Fed up with constant power cuts, Simon and Pratik, two science students set out to create a ‘Bijuli Machine’ that’ll generate electricity from noise. Will they succeed? Find out in this highly-rated (8.7 on IMDB) and deeply inspiring film.
DAADYA (WOODPECKERS OF ROTHA): A special jury award winner at Sundance, this stunningly-beautiful short film tells the story of Atimaley and Devi, whose remote village is haunted by memories. When a dear friend leaves the village without saying goodbye, the old couple faces a dilemma—keep living with the memories or leave the village for good?
