Return to Nepal
This insightful documentary follows musician Bruce Cockburn on his return to Nepal where he finds much has changed during his 20 year absence. Although most of the population still lives in rural villages connected by ancient footpaths, children are going to school and farmers are using new agricultural practices. The film reveals people who have much to offer the world: spiritual wisdom and tactics for survival through determination and interdependence.
