Private Film Screening of Documentary Film ‘I Am Belmaya’

Please join us for an exclusive online screening of the upcoming feature documentary I Am Belmaya, followed by a specially recorded Q&A with director Sue Carpenter and co-director Belmaya Nepali, hosted by TV film critic Anna Smith. 

Your chance to see this beautiful, inspirational film, set in Nepal, before it is released to the public. A story 14 years in the making, I Am Belmaya follows an uneducated young Dalit woman’s transformational journey from orphaned teenager to subjugated wife to award-winning documentary filmmaker. 

I am hugely touched and impressed by this beautiful work. A daring and heartbreaking film, which fills one with hope and admiration. Its charm lies in its humour and sorrow, so deftly intermingled on the screen. Five shining stars from me” – Joanna Lumley
