Baato tells the story of a young village family on an annual migration along the route of a coming transnational highway. Partially complete, the highway project will transform this roadless Himalayan valley permanently and open up a direct transport route between Nepal and China –bringing new challenges, new opportunities, and ultimately a new way of being to those who live along its path. The documentary is a visual feast that glimpses the effects of development and globalization from the perspective of those affected most directly –it is a journey through the heart of a changing Nepal.

(Lucas Millard, Kate Stryker | 2020 | Nepal, USA | 81 minutes)
