White Sun

A Maoist rebel returns home to bury his Royalist father in White Sun, a delicately crafted examination of Nepal’s difficult rebirth after 20 years of war and unrest. Skillfully blending intimate human drama with sharp political observations, Deepak Rauniyar’s outstanding second feature sends a powerful message about the need for tolerance if Nepal is to overcome divisions that remain long after the Comprehensive Peace Accord of 2006. Co-produced by Danny Glover’s New York-based shingle Louverture Films, “White Sun” won the Interfilm award for Promoting Interreligious Dialogue at Venice.

A fundraiser for Myths and Mountains' READ Global, with proceeds to go towards building another READ Library Community Center in Nepal.
