– NZMFF BEST MOUNTAIN CULTURE FILM

17 mins, Director Corey Robinson, Nepal, NZ premiere.

The remote Mustang region of Nepal is on the front line of our planet’s changing climate with glacial water shortages forcing the Gurung family and their neighbours from their homes. Charting a course for future generations, the Gurung family parts ways. The younger generation moves to a new village, leaving behind traditional agriculture to grow apples as a cash crop to sell on the global market. The film is an intimate portrait documenting the family’s efforts to find balance in a changing world.
