A Curious Girl

Jaalgedi

film-roll France, Nepal / Color / 14' / 2017

Jaalgedi takes her family’s animals, like any other day, to pastures outside her remote village. However, the arrival of a white tourist sends shockwaves among the children of the village who have never seen a foreigner in their lives before. Like all her friends, the inquisitive little girl gets distracted from her responsibilities for a while – following the strange white man around the village – only to find a catastrophe has befallen because of her innocent curiosities.
