Indreni Khojdain Jada (Chasing Rainbow)
This fiction drama centers on the life of three siblings who have migrated to Kathmandu - centre of the Nepali universe. The siblings are young, modern, educated, fun loving, and usually full of life, but with limited access to materialistic privileges. This small budget film abandons cinema’s traditional dramatic motifs and uses handheld shots and improvised dialogues successfully blurring the lines of cinema and real life. It is a touching and telling story of youth, family, migration and dreams that get entangled in the urbanized and globalized Kathmandu.
