One the main reasons for making ‘Mira’ was to share this inspirational story with the people of Nepal. I am beyond thrilled that the mobile cinema screenings are rolling out across Nepal this week. The very first screening is taking place in Ghantaghar, Birgunj which is the southern part of Nepal near the border with India. There are many more screenings scheduled for the coming months. A lot of work has gone into this behind the scenes with translators & the dubbing work in Kathmandu was done by Dinesh & Pinki Deokota.
All the Vimeo sales of ‘Mira’ have raised the funds for these mobile cinema screenings so that ‘Mira’ is free to view for all in Nepal using generators, projectors & screens in rural & more remote areas.
We have teamed up with Nepalese initiatives: Bato Ko Cinema & Photo Circle. who are experienced in mobile cinema work. If you rented or bought Mira via Vimeo then a big “thank you” because you have directly contributed to this.
Below are details of the first screenings in November 2016. These are free to attend in Nepal & are shown in an open environment using a projector [powered by generator] and screens. Everybody is welcome.
