Coming of Age, Documentary
English / Nepali (English subtitles)
This intimate documentary is an important look at the oppressive and patriarchal systems that prevent women from exploring their passions in Nepal. Here the camera is handed over to the subject, a young woman named Belmaya Nepali who, despite having an upbringing full of abuse and prejudice, maintains her spirit of defiance and longs to do something important with her life. After having been introduced to her at an orphanage in Nepal, Sue, a seasoned filmmaker, makes the decision to mentor Belmaya in her quest to become a filmmaker and follow her dreams, giving Belmaya the equipment needed for her to make her first film. I Am Belmaya documents the birth of an artistic voice from the most unlikely of circumstances, making it an optimistic and challenging film about the importance of allowing other voices the space to speak.
