“Pink Tiffany premieres at KIMFF to rave reviews”
The Kathmandu Post
“A tale of triumph from the transgender community.”
We are very excited to premiere our new documentary film "Pink Tiffany" at the 15th Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival in December 2017.
Meghna Lama is a torch-bearer for the transgender community in Nepal. Bravely embracing her transformation in a culture that often values sons and daughters very differently, her dauntless attitude and spirited laugh are a powerful reminder of not only what it is to be transgender in Nepal, but ultimately, what it is to be human.
While Nepal may be a beacon of progress, legally recognizing an “other” gender, this film is a breaking of the silence on the daily struggle to gain not only social legitimacy, but also family acceptance, perhaps the largest hurdle for all of our personal journeys and dreams.
Film Screens on December 16th, 2017.

From the Longview Journal: Texas
by Jimmy Isaac
"Reel East Texas Film Festival is in essence an international event with seven foreign films. Among them is a documentary that Hale and Festival Operations Director James Draper agreed will be a cultural exploration for audiences.
According to the Toronto Film Festival, it's the documentary directed by Miranda Mortan Yap and Sophie Dia Pegrum that captures the journey of a young woman, Nisha, as she challenges the traditional ideologies in her community. The documentary shows the way women's lives are still bound by Hindu societal structure in Jumla, Nepal.
They watched the documentary at a film festival in San Antonio, and after talking with its filmmakers on a Saturday, they had the film submitted to their festival the following Monday."
"I consider myself to be someone well read and at least try to know as much as I can," Hale said, "and I didn't not know it was this bad. Women do everything in this village, and when I saw everything? They wake up in the morning before the sun comes up. They plow the fields, they tend the gardens, they tend the livestock, they do the household things. I am not kidding when I tell you that the men stand and watch — utterly bizarre. Come see the movie. I'm not exaggerating. I was absolutely shocked at just the utter acceptance of it." - Chip Hale
