I Am Belmaya
with TideTurner Films
Part of Life Long Learning Film Screenings
Online Zoom Film Screening
A tale of rebellion, courage and hope in patriarchal Nepal. Silenced and subjugated all her life, uneducated Belmaya takes up the movie camera to tell her story. Spanning 14 years, Sue Carpenter and Belmaya Nepali‘s feature-length documentary follows Belmaya’s transformational journey as she stands up to her husband and society, and reclaims her voice through filmmaking.
