On the occasion of the premiere of the documentary film „Urmila - für die Freiheit“, the South Asia Institute invites you cordially to a joint discussion with Urmila Chaudhary, lead actress of the documentary, and Man Bahadur Chhetri, project manager of Nepal Youth Foundation. The guests talk about the film on Monday, June 13, 2016 at 4.15 pm in room 317 of the South Asia Institute.

Urmila - My Memory Is My Power (Urmila - für die Freiheit)“ is a German documentary by Susan Gluth from 2016. The film follows Urmila's quest for justice and her dream to end child slavery in Nepal.

The film has been launched in Germany on May 26, 2016 and has already been shown in Heidelberg; further screenings in the Rhein-Neckar region are possible.  

Further information about the film is available here.

In 2000, Nepal Youth Foundation (official film partner) began a campaign to end the practice of Kamalari, a centuries-old system of indentured servitude embedded in the culture of rural Nepal. These girls are supported with long-term educational programs (scholarships/childhood development/vocational training) in Kathmandu.
