Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

The film follows the residents of Langtang village in upper Rasuwa district, Nepal, following their evacuation to Kathmandu in the aftermath of the April 2015 earthquake. Most residents are taken to a large Gelug monastery where they are slowly provided with basic shelter, limited food and negligible health care. The film maker interviews individuals suffering from the trauma with no psychological support and barely able to cope with the heat and low altitude. He follows the local cheesemaker when a group returns to their villages weeks later searching for bodies and livestock.
