QWFF: Sarita
Sarita by Sergio Basso (100) Nepal

All Live Events Are Presented by BENEDICT REALTY GROUP
In 1990, one sixth of the population of Bhutan was exiled because they demanded greater democratic rights from the ruler. The film follows the story of Sarita, a 13-year-old girl born in Khudunabari, a refugee camp in Nepal where over 100,000 Bhutanese exiles live. Now they will be relocated: thousands of families will be forced to emigrate and their Lotschampa identity will disappear forever. Sarita and her friends will not tell us their odyssey: they will dance and sing it.
