      TASHI'S TURBINE – 52 minutes
      A film by Amitabh Joshi

      Set in the Himalayan Mountains, 2014 CAAM Documentary Fund selection TASHI’S TURBINE is an uplifting tale of a small village’s attempt to harness renewable, sustainable energy with the power of the wind. The story begins with the strong friendship between Tashi Bista and Jeevan, who journey from Kathmandu to Namdok with hopes of building a stronger Nepal, one wind turbine at a time. Their first site, Namdok, is a humble remote village in Upper Mustang, which previously relied on sparse candlelight to power through the windy nights. As Tashi and Jeevan work with the villagers, the elements and gusty landscape bring their own set of unforeseen challenges for installing a strong wind turbine.

      Filmmaker Amitabh Joshi’s first feature length documentary Tashi’s Turbine has been screened at festivals world wide, and premiered on PBS’s The WORLD Channel. Amitabh has worked as a cinematographer for Art21 and numerous documentaries across the globe. In 2016 Amitabh Joshi was accepted into Lincoln Center Film Society’s Artist Academy at the 2016 New York Film Festival where he received mentorship and was recognized for his work in the field thus far.

      Filmmaker will be present after the screening for the interaction.
