On Friday April 17th USC Canada is showing “Return to Nepal” a film journey to the spectacular nation of Nepal with Canadian music icon, Bruce Cockburn. Returning after his first visit 20 years ago, Cockburn travels to Humla, a remote region nestled in the Himalayan Mountains where USC’s Nepali partners have been working for years.
Return to Nepal is a revealing glimpse at this little-known corner of the world whose people have much to offer: strategies for survival in a tough land. The film begins at 7:30 pm (Doors open at 7:00 pm) and will be followed by a reception with snacks and music at 8:15 pm. Admission is free.
USC Canada is a social justice organization that promotes vibrant family farms, strong rural communities, and healthy ecosystems around the world. Visitors can learn more about USC Canada at a table set up outside the screening room. To purchase a copy of the film, or to learn more about the people of Humla and how you can share your support, email Una at ReturntoNepal@usc-canada.org.
