P&I - Director Bio

Deepak Rauniyar’s feature film debut, Highway, premiered at the Berlin Inter- national Film Festival in 2012, and was the first Nepali film ever to screen at a major international festival. Highway provoked a tumultuous response in Nepal with its realistic characters and their taboo-shrouded issues. White Sun is Deepak’s second feature.


White Sun (Seto Surya)

Part of the World Perspectives Strand


A thoughtful insight into collective memory and pain haunting a small nepali village, White Sun is a remarkably assured film from Nepali filmmaker Deepak Rauniyar. Chandra (Dayahang Rai), a former Maoist rebel, returns to his home village for his father’s funeral. The village may appear to be peacefully nestled in the countryside, but it still bears the scars of the country’s civil war, and while some object to Chandra, he is of real interest to young Pooja (Sumi Malla), who thinks he may be her father. Beautiful imagery and an enthralling story.
