Amid the political changes going to take place in the pristine kingdom of the Himalaya, the life of Bijuli, a 12 years old girl in the remote west of Karnali, is also about change forever. Bansulli is a journey of hopes and desires, against the social stigma that still prevails in Nepal.

Director’s Statement

I can smell alpine pines and fresh lush meadows, chill Himalayan breeze passing through me and making me realize how wonderful this place is where I am born. With time, I have seen the dark aspects of my life and society which is drowned in poverty, illiteracy and taboo where there is a tall mountain standing between Male and a Female aspirations. All of this thought, self-exploration of pain, happiness and learnings brought me to create Bansulli.
