Synopsis:

 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

towards peace.
