Untouchable - The Movie

The upcoming film, Untouchables, will be a cultural comparison of how the long standing caste system exists and dominates the present day realities for many diverse ethnic groups throughout Nepal. It will focus on the different lifestyles facing three separate Dalit communities and how they have reacted to their place in society. Each group will show how the caste system is represented where cultural and religious institutions continue to perpetuate a hierarchy of social boundaries, where every person is born into an ascribed stratification without choice or chance of radical self improvement. It will discuss what it means to belong to the four most recognized caste divisions, and segregated untouchables, which define and dominate a traditionally rooted country facing gradual social change and mental shifts in the modern world.
