Solar Cinema on the move: Nepal

The concept is simple; some pack animals (mules) carry the solar-cinema and -film equipment from village to village. In each village solar panels charge a battery. Interested inhabitants have the opportunity to produce a short film; a film discussing local issues, edited and presented in the village. The Solar Cinema Team assists and guides the short film projects. For the cinema evening, at the end of staying three to six days, a screen is tautened between two houses or two trees. Simple cinema equipment, such as a projector, a video player and a speaker are installed. After the local short-film, a Nepalese feature film, dealing with people’s everyday lives is shown to the inhabitants. 


Solar Cinema on the Move: Nepal is a non-profit, non-political and non-denominational program of Swiss Solar Culture.
