HOSPITAL

Synopsis

This is an unusually intimate portrait of a state-run hospital in one of Nepal’s most remote and poorest districts of Kalikot in West Nepal. For medical personnel, it is the kind of posting that is to be avoided or to quickly escape from. In capturing the daily goings-on of the hospital, the film affirms that, no matter what, individuals make a difference in peoples’ lives. Besides showing the hospital’s caring of the sick, however, the film offers a revealing glimpse into how ordinary Nepalis cope with their lot, without drama, and often with humanity and humor, while laying bare some grimmer fissures of Nepali social reality.
