BENEATH EVEREST - NEPAL REBORN
Asia Society cordially invites you to the New York Premiere of
Beneath Everest: Nepal Reborn
Filmed over four years during the height of the Maoist insurgency and Nepal's historic transition from a 240-year old monarchy to a new Federal Democratic Republic, Beneath Everest is a journey that exposes the causes of the insurgency and critically questions the use and continuation of violence as well as challenges its justification. The film encourages ordinary Nepalis to tell their stories and share their hopes and aspirations for a New Nepal as the country begins the long journey towards sustainable peace, political stability, and an inclusive society.
