Everybody is well informed about the increasing urbanization in Kathmandu and its effects.
We can hardly see any trees and greeneries around here, it’s like a concrete jungle. Awareness programs regarding trees plantation and other environmental campaigns are lees effective if the people are not self aware.
This Movie is about self realization. When the small girl who loves to draw her surroundings grows up and compares the pictures, she realizes that the city she was brought up has no greeneries left. So what does she do? she takes her 5 year old daughter and does a simple act of planting a tree.So by this way, she is also transferring the knowledge and realization to the next generation.
It is very easy to make people understand if they are self aware.
“Self awareness campaigns are the most important ones”

he film is titled “OUR EARTH” indicating the significance of the earth belonging to us and we being solely responsible for it’s protection.However, our actions (human action) are giving nothing to the earth but just pain.It is a stop motion animation film based on saving our one and only earth.It contains 371 photo clips and each being personally edited by me.This film is 2 minute and 49 seconds long.
The film begins with earth being happy and clouds moving around it.Then the humans actions begins to destroy the earth. firstly, i have shown trees being cut down by harvester. This indicates the growing mass deforestation which have become a favorite activity of man to extract medicines and precious paper.Then after a man kills an elephant.Here, the Elephant not only indicates itself but also a number of other animals who are being killed and illegally traded.This two events shows the land pollution and exploitation of the biodiversity.Secondly, i have shown the water being another polluted target of humans as many toxins thrown out into the water has been killing the aquatic animals. This has a very negative effect on the aquatic plants as well.Finally, i have shown the city area in order to show the increasing air pollution that has been caused due to over utilization of vehicles and establishment of industries.These things have continuously been involved in the process of harmful emissions which have led our earth to face Global warming.And, the film also shows that our human population has been growing every second and is increasing beyond 7 billion. At last, this film ends with the message of stopping these activities and raising hands to plant trees as Earth belongs to us and we have the sole responsibility for it’s protection. Since, we only have earth and have no other options we are quite obliged to save and protect it because we are the ultimate reason for it’s destruction.
Revolution of the Minds
dir. Sarthak Karki
The effects of a superficial change in our environment may last for a while, but when the idea for that change originates form the depth of our minds, those changes will take us a long way. “Revolution of the Minds” is about how the current generation is going to bring a change in our condition, and that change is going to be one that comes from within us, as we change the way we look at things, as we rid ourselves of greed and pride, and work with the goodness of our hearts and the powers of our minds.
There is a Rule
dir. Parasar Wagle
Imagine- When races, religion or countries will have to finally share something which cannot be distributed according to man-made boundaries. There will be one simple rule for survival- harmony. A single man’s lack of trust on his fellow human can lead to catastrophe. This film is a short symbolic expression of my paranoia.
