We kick off 2018 with something special: two documentaries hosted by noted Cowichan Bay, BC filmmaker, Nick Versteeg. “Five Weeks in Nepal” was intended to highlight the outreach of a local BC charity, against the backdrop of the classic trek into Everest Base Camp. You’ll see spectacular scenery and meet local people who have adapted to their mountain environment over thousands of years. But then the devastating earthquake of April 25, 2015 changed everything. Luck spared Nick’s life and what makes his story unique was his promise to return. His sequel, “Nepal’s Heartbeat”, filmed in April 2017, picks up the inspiring story of the seemingly infinite resilience of both human and natural communities, and what we can learn from the rebuilding experience.
