Caravan: audio-visual tour of remote Nepal

July 23rd, 2009

Being away from Nepal is the price many of us have chosen to pay for the sake of better education and career. We miss Nepal; it is plain old nostalgia. The good news is that the world is shrinking and it is getting easier to be in touch with Nepal. We do that by watching ‘तितो सत्य’ at nepal123.com, watching Nepali Music videos in YouTube or by following latest development in blogs and web-sites.

I recently found that Netflix, a US based movie renting service, had Caravan (the movie Himalaya by Eric Valli was known by the name Caravan in Nepal) available for renting. I had watched that movie in the old Jai Nepal theater the year it was nominated for Oscar in the ‘Foreign Language’ category. I was impressed by the breath-taking visuals from Dolpa and by the work the team had put together. When I found that I could watch it again, I did that without second thoughts.

It was like a short visit to Nepal that filled me with joy. The movie impressed me equally this time. I recommend that you view it if you have not viewed it already. If you are not a Netflix subscriber, you can subscribe to their 15 day free-trial and watch the movie (and several others like Slumdog Millionaire) at no cost. Click on the image below to rent the DVD from Netflix. If you are not an existing customer, you will be asked to join the free trial in the following page. I am sure you will enjoy the movie!
