KATHMANDU: Yet another Nepali film is set to have its world premiere at the 48th annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this year.

‘Gaun Aayeko Bato’ (A Road to A Village), directed by Nabin Subba, will be screened in the prestigious international film festival to be held from September 7-17 in Canada.

Subba’s movie portrays how conflict makes inroad into the relationship between a father and his son after a road track is opened in their village.

Set against the social backdrop of indigenous Rai community, the movie features artistes such as Dayahang Rai, Pashupati Rai, Prasana Rai, Keshav Rai, Sumitra Rai, Raj Thapa and Prem Subba among others.

Mahesh Rai and director Subba have jointly written the script of the movie where international cinematographer Josh Heram, editor Kwan Pun Leung and musician Heidi Li have collaborated. Along with ‘Mountain Queen: The Summits of Lhakpa Sherpa’, it has become the second Nepali story selected for world premiere in the TIFF this year.

Director Subba said that this selection had not only increased the visibility of Nepali movie worldwide, it had also further enhanced its authentic international representation.

Subba, credited to direct internationally critically-acclaimed films such as ‘Khangri’ and ‘Numafung’ and the like, shared that ‘Gaun Aayeko Bato’ is a community-funded film with contributions from Nepali individuals at home and abroad, the makers said.
