(Nepal; 2010; 18 minutes; Various Languages with English Subtitles
Directed by: Rituraj Sapkota
Produced by: Tourism Development Endeavors - TUDE)
The Conscience of Karnali looks at the status of development in the Mugu district of Karnali. The film raises questions on where issues such as employment, technology, education and health stand amidst a largely isolated community in a highly globalised world. The film is a visual journey across a long and arduous trek to some of the most remote villages in Nepal and an interaction with the locals and what they would like to see happening. Development will perhaps eventually come in, but then, what exactly are we looking for when we think of ‘developing’ a place?
