Summary
Set in the grassroots of the Himalayan mountains, TASHI'S TURBINE is an uplifting tale of a small village's attempt to harness renewable, sustainable energy with the power of the wind. The story begins with the strong friendship between Tashi Bista and Jeevan, who journey from Kathmandu to Namdok with hopes of building a stronger Nepal, one wind turbine at a time...Their first site, Namdok, is a humble remote village in Upper Mustang, which previously relied on sparse candlelight to power through the windy nights. As Tashi and Jeevan work with the villagers, the elements and gusty landscape bring their own set of unforeseen challenges for installing a strong wind turbine..."Director and cinematographer Amitabh Joshi tells a story of friendship and engineering with simple and graceful composition, paying delicate attention to the natural beauty of Namdok. As the villagers speak and laugh with the camera, their storytelling weaves together a light-hearted, moving account on the power of the wind and a community's vision."— Hardeep Jandu.."Tashi's Turbine is a very depictive film, placing a critical perspective on the growing energy crises in the world. The story is a beautifully told one, lending a personal face on the quest for renewable energy and how it can inspire and sustain a community."— Special Jury Mention, Center For Asian American Media Film Festival..Special Jury Mention, Documentary, CAAMFEST, San Francisco, USA 2015
