The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Nepalese human rights advocate Mandira Sharma, filmmaker Julie Bridgham and Michelle Parlevliet, Senior Conflict Transformation Advisor for the Danish government in Nepal. She focused primarily on transitional justice, impunity and the establishment of a truth and reconciliation commission.
Moderator is Opzij journalist Renate van der Zee.
Lawyer and human rights advocate Mandira Sharma (1972) headed an investigation to support victims of Nepal's civil war, a war that led to the deaths of over 13,000 people. Both sides of the conflict, government and Maoist rebels alike, committed human rights violations. Sharma was the first female lawyer to support the victims.
