Highway is an upcoming Nepali movie that is really raising the bar! Expectations from the people already tower Mount Everest. I sincerely hope that one realises that too much expectations only lead to disappointment. Let us give Nepali cinema time to make mistakes, time to compromise and improve.
Aside from a star cast with the likes of Dayahang Rai, Reecha Sharma, Eelum Dixit and many more, Highway is the first Nepali film to be partly produced by New York-based company Louverture Films. Now getting to the point, the movie needs your help as it’s started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $30,000 USD for post-production. The 30 day campaign currently has 16 days left and impressively has raised $16,466 so far. But that’s not enough and that’s where you step in. Even $1 dollar has the potential to make a difference. Share the link, share the campaign and your money will go towards the final edit, sound design and online post, which includes the colour correct and the sound mix.
When I initially heard of this, I thought… there are children without food in Nepal and why should we raise money for a movie. I made it a point to ask a person regarding why she chose to help Highway to which she replied saying
” I just thought that unknowingly, I somehow happen to spend money in many stuffs… so why not in such a beautiful project of one of the most sincere directors of Nepal. I mean why not for such a meaningful movie that he’s working hard to bring to us.”
That put my thoughts to rest. So guys and girls, if you’ have read what HIGHWAY is about or like the trailer and want to see this project complete then please spare your drinks money and donate to the campaign.
