From deep in the Himalaya Mountains where Maoist soldiers greet the
morning sun as they warm up, to the cities where a powerful movement
for change explodes on the streets, the people of Nepal have
experienced moments they never thought possible.
Filmed over four years during the height of the insurgency and the
historic transition of Nepal from a 240-year old monarchy to a
Republic nation, 'Beneath Everest' is a journey that exposes the
grass root realities of Nepal's ten-year war.
The film critically questions the use and continuation of
'violence' and challenges its justifications.
Directed by a native Nepali, the film encourages Nepalis silenced by
the fear to tell their stories, and challenges them to reflect on
their fears, triumphs and hopes as Nepal begins the long journey
