In celebration of Culture Fest, Global Jackets and Nepali Club at Georgia Tech will be viewing "Himalaya" which was nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 72nd Academy Awards in 2000.  

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."
