This acclaimed new Nepalese drama has a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It tells of two estranged brothers, on opposite sides of Nepal’s long civil war (1996-2006), who reunite when their father dies in a remote village and they must carry the corpse down a mountain to its proscribed, traditional cremation place. “The sky-high Himalayas and the aftermath of civil war cast equally dark shadows in White Sun, an impressively accomplished second feature by Nepalese writer-director Deepak Rauniyar.” –Hollywood Reporter. .
