Being Dalit

Alberto Guevara and Elysée Nouvet

2007, 38:42 minutes, colour, Nepali with English Subtitles


To be untouchable or ‘Dalit’ in Nepal is to be forced into this society’s lowest caste. Treated as polluting, the Dalit often live on the margins of Nepali society, poor and excluded from all but the most demeaning jobs. This is the story of two young Dalits fighting discrimination in their lives and communities. Using theatre as their main weapon, Deepak and Bir Bahadur work tirelessly for a future without the pain of inequality.
