  • Title:
    Leper a film
  • Author: Ellen Bruno; Sapana Sakya; Pema Chogkhan; Film Library (Firm)
  • Description: Provides a rare and intimate glimpse into a contemporary society of lepers in the remote village of Kokona in Nepal. Villagers speak openly and emotionally about their relationship to their sickness, to the "healthy" community outside the village boundaries, and the myriad stigmas and misunderstandings which surround a disease that has marked their bodies and their lives. The villagers speak eloquently of how, after much struggle and hardship, they build new lives for themselves, recreating family and community in the context of this disease. Their poignant and revealing stories offer heartfelt reflections on societal fears and aversions to sickness, bodily differences, and death.
