Respected Nepali Community members of Atlanta, Georgia/NASeA Region and beyond,
Respected Editor in Chief Press/Online Media around the globe,
Greetings from NASeA!
On behalf of the External Relations Committee of Nepalese Association in Southeast America (NASeA) I would like to encourage you all to be the part the Cultural Fest celebration event organized by Global Jackets and Nepali Club of Georgia Tech. During this event they will be viewing “Himalaya” which was nominated for the Best Foreign Film during the 72nd Academy Awards in 2000 on this Friday, April 3rd 2015 at 6 PM
Synopsis: “Himalaya (French: Himalaya: L’Enfance d’un chef’) is a 1999 Nepalese movie directed by Eric Valli
Himalaya is a story set against the backdrop of the Nepalese Himalayas. At an altitude of five thousand metres in the remote mountain region of Dolpa, Himalaya is the story of villagers who take a caravan of yaks across the mountains, carrying rock salt from the high plateau down to the lowlands to trade for grain. An annual event, the caravan provides the grain that the villagers depend on to survive the winter. The film unfolds as a story of rivalry based on misunderstanding and distrust, between the aging chief and the young daring herdsman, who is both a friend and a rival to the chief’s family, as they struggle for leadership of the caravan.”
Please spread the news! And encourage everyone to come and view “Himalaya” movie and furthermore explore the natural beauty of our motherland Nepal.
Date: Friday, April 3rd 2015

Executive Vice President, NASeA
