Nepali doc­u­men­tary to be screened across Europe

People's Review - - LAST PAGE -

Nepali doc­u­men­tary fea­ture Bhagye le Bacheka­haru (Nepal Earth­quake: He­roes, Sur­vivors and Mir­a­cles) di­rected by Ganesh Pandey will be screened at nine film fes­ti­vals across Europe this year. The doc­u­men­tary, which has al­ready bagged sev­eral in­ter­na­tional ac­co­lades, is now slated to be screened at fes­ti­vals in Switzer­land, Italy, Slo­vakia, Poland, Bul­garia, Fin­land, Slove­nia and the Nether­lands. The 45-minute long doc­u­men­tary, tells the sto­ries of the sur­vivors of the last year's earth­quakes. “The film has been se­lected mostly for Moun­tain film fes­ti­vals across Europe. I be­lieve that this se­ries of screen­ings will help pro­mote Nepal and bring the dif­fi­cult re­con­struc­tion pro­cessto light,” says di­rec­tor Pandey. The film's un­prece­dented run of pop­u­lar­ity started off with two wins at last year's Kath­mandu In­ter­na­tional Moun­tain Film Fes­ti­val 2015 (KIMFF). The doc­u­men­tary bagged awards for Best Doc­u­men­tary un­der Nepal Panorama sec­tion and Pub­lic Choice Award at the fes­ti­val. The film, pro­duced by SharadaGaire, un­der the ban­ner of Sam­rat Movies, and edited by Ku­mar Shah, fea­tures live scenes of the chaos in the im­me­di­ate af­ter­math of the quakes and how lucky some sur­vivors were to es­cape death.
