Film: Dhago (The Thread)
A couple of years ago, I on whim pitched this tiny little idea I had for a film that could not be shot anywhere else but Nepal. The idea excited Nitesh Raj Pant (a veteran actor when it comes to Nepali industry) and his wife, and since they were both heading to Nepal, I was invited to come along and we’d make it. I pitched this story in November, and by December the same year, we were in Nepal working long hours in the day on pre-production and shoot, which was hard work but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
The movie, a 20min short based on local supernatural folktales is now available on YouTube for you to enjoy, English subtitles included. In celebration of Nepalese New Year yesterday, the film was released on the public platform.
Watch, enjoy and share.
