Long Distances - Traveling in the Other Nepal
This cinematic expedition follows paths in Nepal that are intentionally off the beaten route. Six hours by automobile away from the chaotic, impressive capital Katmandu, roads, electricity, telephones end...in the middle of the other Nepal. Continuing from there, it means walking, walking to the most remote places with names like Ratomate or Gumukhola. It is a walk along the border, not only geographically along the Nepal-Tibet border, but also along one that provides the links between the global experience industry, local underdevelopment and common solutions in the microcosm. This film also deals with a model of Austrian-Nepalese development cooperation aimed at self-help and assistance, transparency and synergies, mini-budgets and maximum results.
