Description

 

“Other Nature” chronicles Nepal’s passage of the first law guaranteeing third gender rights in the world, as the country transitions to a federal republic after 240 years of monarchy. Third gender refers to the presence of identities that challenge binary dichotomies of gender, a concept known as Tritiya Prakriti in Hindu thought for thousands of years. Nepal is in the midst of building a constitution, with more than 600 political parties. The film builds on various perspectives, with an in-depth look into the personal stories of Nepali LGBT human rights activists, as well as reflections from South Asian artists, politicians, lawyers, and religious figures on the politics and ethics of same-sex marriage and the third gender.
