Unwritten: A Visual Journey of Nepal

In 2014, filming began on Unwritten: A Visual Journey of Nepal, an arthouse short film shot in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal only months before the Ghorka earthquakes. A film project started with Shukri Toefy under the Rainmakers Journal thought leadership platform, Unwritten is a powerful cinematic account of Toefy's journey across the Kathmandu Valley as told by the pages of his journal. Along his journey he meets with artisans, musicians, spiritualists, scholars, and survivors of a bygone era where the knowledge handed down from generation to generation was seen as a rite of passage, in search of lessons he can apply to his own life.

Unwritten has received critical acclaim in the international film category with Official Selection at Roma Cinema Doc, Largo Film Awards and the 10th Annual Bali International Film Festival, and has won at the 2016 Amsterdam Film Festival and Hollywood International Independent Documentary Awards.
