Searching For Nepal chronicles the emotional and cultural journey of a former Peace Corps Volunteer as he returns to Nepal, seeking out his adopted family in the aftermath of Nepal’s Maoist civil war.  Filmed entirely on location, this exotic, soul-searching adventure explores the universal yearning to go home again—in a unique setting.


Searching_For_Nepal_Director_Phil_DeutschlePhil Deutschle has lived throughout the world (Nepal, Denmark, Navajo Nation, Botswana, Bolivia), teaching science in four different languages.  His writings include: The Two-Year Mountain (Bradt Publications) and Across African Sand (Dimi Press).  With a lifetime of adventuring (solo Himalayan mountaineering, paddling a dugout canoe down the Congo River, cycling across the Kalahari Desert), he was featured in the opening two episodes of Mosaic Picture’s Classic Adventure television series  (BBC 1, A&E, PBS).

 

Searching_For_Nepal_Director_Robyn-HutmanRobyn Hutman earned a BA in Film from Pennsylvania State University in 1985.  After an early career editing feature films in Hollywood, she re-discovered her true passion—documentary filmmaking, in which she captures the natural world and human interactions.  This is evidenced in her editorial work on such award-winning films as The Web of Life, Road to the Future, and Oceans in Glass.  Her documentaries have appeared on PBS, Nature, and in theaters worldwide.
