Deepak Rauniyar, Nepal

Deepak Rauniyar’s feature film debut, HIGHWAY, premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival (Panorama, 2012), and was the first Nepali film ever to screen at a major international festival. HIGHWAY provoked a tumultuous response in Nepal with its realistic characters and their taboo-shrouded issues. The film opened the New York MoMA’s 2013 ContemporAsian series and received a run to enthusiastic crowds. WHITE SUN is Deepak’s second feature.
