Reel World Documentary Film Night - Tashi's Turbine
Thursday April 13, 2017
7:00 PM until 9:00 PM
Our Reel World film series introduces you to thought provoking documentary films for learning about the people and cultures of the world. This month's feature is Tashi's Turbine.
Set in the grassroots of the Himalayan mountains, Tashi's Turbine is an uplifting tale of a small village's attempt to harness renewable, sustainable energy with the power of the wind. The story begins with the strong friendship between Tashi Bista and Jeevan, who journey from Kathmandu to Namdok with hopes of building a stronger Nepal, one wind turbine at a time. Their first site, Namdok, is a humble remote village in Upper Mustang, which previously relied on sparse candlelight to power through the windy nights. As Tashi and Jeevan work with the villagers, the elements and gusty landscape bring their own set of unforeseen challenges for installing a strong wind turbine.
in Nepali and Lowa with English subtitles, 56 min. 2015.
