description

1 HOUR DOCUMENTARY

Bruce discovers a land where much has changed, with a Maoist government recently installed, women newly empowered and fresh initiatives to deal with the grinding poverty of the majority of the Nepali people. But it's also a land where, in some of the remotest areas, life is lived much in the way it has for centuries - salt caravans, subsistence farming on steep mountain terraces and off-the-grid villages connected by an ancient network of footpaths.

Return to Nepal is a revealing glimpse at a corner of the world we know little about, but whose people have much to offer us: spiritual wisdom, tactics for survival in a tough land and shining examples of interdependence and determination.

"[Return to Nepal] has a disarming informality and intimacy that captured my attention, and I was blown away by the powerful images and optimistic message. Very fine work." -Clarke Mackey, Queen's University Film & Media Department
