White Sun (Seto Surya) (Nepal)

Set in the microcosm of a tiny mountain village, White Sun, directed by Deepak Rauniyar, illustrates various issues still dividing Nepal after the end of the civil war, the bloody armed conflict between government forces and Maoist rebels (1996-2006) that ended the monarchy and established a People’s Republic. When the elderly chairman of a small village suddenly dies, his daughter-in-law needs help to move the body out of the house, since women are not allowed to touch the dead.
