Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Fribourg 2017

The burial of an old man in a remote village in Nepal threatens to fail because the quarreling family can not overcome old traditions and political differences. The cleverly narrated, multi-layered film reflects in a simple family history the difficult situation of a country after a long-term civil war. Director Deepak Rauniyar pleads in a light, humorous tone for reconciliation between the war parties, between generations, between man and woman, between tradition and modernity. After all, it is the children who bring the white sun to gleam - the sun of the future, of reconciliation and hope.
