Description

Join us for a special event film screening of Trembling Mountain, raising funds for the Langtang Memory Project and rebuilding efforts in this same region.

Among the worst hit in Nepal’s 2015 earthquake was paradise-like Langtang, a prime trekking destination. A glacial collapse caused an avalanche of rock, ice and mud, resulting in an airblast, equal to half the force of the Hiroshima atom bomb. About 400 died, among them tourists and a fourth of Langtang’s community, the survivors evacuated to Kathmandu. In showing the much dwindled community’s response to the disaster, until their resettlement a year later, the film reveals the transformation, profound and yet often taken for granted, that has been sweeping the Himalaya over the last decades.

The film follows the residents of Langtang village in upper Rasuwa district, Nepal, following their evacuation to Kathmandu in the aftermath of the April 2015 earthquake. Most residents are taken to a large Gelug monastery where they are slowly provided with basic shelter, limited food and negligible health care. The film maker interviews individuals suffering from the trauma with no psychological support and barely able to cope with the heat and low altitude. He follows the local cheesemaker when a group returns to their villages weeks later searching for bodies and livestock.

Your host for the evening is Emily Eglitis. Emily's connection with Langtang started in 2006 when she lived in Kathmandu with a family from Langtang. She fell in love with the Himalayas, its people and culture and now runs Yoga Treks to Langtang to directly support the economy, employment and rebuilding in this region.

Join Emily for an exclusive pre-movie dinner event. Enjoy a welcome drink and three course (vegetarian) meal at a private dinner hosted by Emily at Auchendarroch House. Gain special insights about the movie and the Langtang region of Nepal. VIP packages include a welcome drink, two course meal and special presentations including insights about the region followed by entry to the film screening.

General Admission Tickets available to the film: Film only event starts at 7.30pm.
