Searching for Nepal

Documentary Feature, 88 minutes, USA/Nepal

Directed by Philip Deutschle

As a young Peace Corps Volunteer in the Himalayas of Nepal, Phil Deutschle faced obstacles of language, illness, and extreme isolation.  Only the friendship of his adoptive father, Krishna Bhakta Himalaya, allowed him to survive. Three decades later, in the aftermath of Nepal's Maoist civil war, Phil returns.  In this compelling cultural adventure, Phil seeks to re-unite with his long-lost Nepali family--before it's too late.
