KHUSHI, OF KIDS AND TEMPLES
The last of the traditional peoples
An episode from the series RESISTANCE
In Nepal, the harshness of daily life are driving many families from the Himalayan ethnic groups to the slums of Kathmandu, the capital. There, they don’t find the dream they were chasing and many kids end up in the streets, surviving on menial jobs. Yet the Kushi’s joyful lifestyle guides them on.
This intimate film, authentic and far from pessimistic, invites us to share the destinies of some of these young people from the streets of Kathmandu to their villages high in the Himalayas.
