The Family Stones Documentary

The DVD cover for the Family Stones documentary

Incarcerated at twelve for a crime her mother committed, Sapana’s story is one that has been shared by thousands of Nepali youth. Shunned by her father and community, she and her brother accompanied their mother to prison after her arrest for trafficking young girls into the sex trade in India.

Indoctrinated at fourteen by Maoist recruiters, Chandra became a messenger for the Maoist rebels in their uprising against the government, an act considered treason by the Nepali Army who arrested him…

Reel Youth, in partnership with Prisoners Assistance Nepal (PA Nepal), is proud to present a touching and uplifting film about seven remarkable Nepali youth and their struggle to connect to a society that relinquished them.

Filmed in part by the youth themselves, ‘FAMILY STONES’ showcases the work of Canadian Zachary Bartonas the Directer of Kamala Foundation, and it’s sister organization PA Nepal.  It is a testament to resilience and the individuals who continue to rescue children from the Nepal’s prisons.

Scored with songs by the youth of PA Nepal, and violist Christien Lein, the result is a film that is much like the children themselves: captivating, ebullient and memorable.

This film was produced with the financial support of the Canadian Government through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

    The themes loving, learning, strength and playfulness come to mind when I think about the impact I see ReelYouth making at home and around the world.
