Coffee. Climate. Community.Deusa, Nepal.
Commissioned for The Glacier Trust in collaboration with EcoHimal.
My work included pre-production organization (logistics, script-writing, shot list), filming for one week on location (including interviewing, translating, and managing sound production), post-production and editing (organizing all media files, editing multiple versions of the film, working with team members on translation and subtitling, sound editing and color-correcting) and distribution coordination. I also created four 30-second cuts for social media.
“In the remote community of Deusa, fifty miles south of Mount Everest, an organising effort is underway. A group of farmers are changing the way they relate to the land and to the global economic structures that have held them in poverty for so long. What they are doing to simultaneously adapt to climate change and to eradicate poverty may provide a model that other Himalayan communities can follow. This is their story.”
