At A Glance
Born in the remotest villages in Nepal’s High Himalayas at the age of 4 children travel to Kathmandu to enrol on a 12 year program at Snowland Ranag Light of Education School. This privilege comes at a price as logistics and expense will prevent these children from seeing their families whilst they complete their studies. Children of the Snow Land charts the overwhelming story of three students on their expedition home, but how they summit their emotional journey is truly quite remarkable.

Children of the Snow Land - Premiere Interview
Co-directors Zara Balfour, Marcus Stephenson and our three subjects Nima Gurung, Jeewan Mahatara, Tsering Deki attend the UK Premiere and the Curzon Soho and Premiere Scene’s Claire Bueno and Mike Jonas were eager to interview them all about it.
Join us as we ask the filmmakers about why the subjects cast were the right choice and about the complexities of shooting a documentary across the treacherous mountainous terrain. And Nima Gurung, Jeewan Mahatara, Tsering Deki Lama about being a part of the film and if they had any reservations in sharing their personal story.
