Kumari: A Father’s Dream
- 17 mins
Deep in rural Nepal, a group of childhood friends channels their resources and energy into fulfilling Jagat Lama’s promise to his dying father: to bring medical care to their home of Kumari. Led by Lama, the team begins developing a self-sustaining community centered around many of the region’s firsts: basic electricity, a women’s skill center, a local school, a working community farm and a medical hospital. Less than two years later, a massive earthquake hits Nepal, destroying the community’s progress. Wrestling with the continued challenges, Lama wonders if his promise to his father is slipping out of reach.

Hutchings Museum Institute
Exploring the Past. Creating the Future.
Every exhibit, every program, and truly everything we do at the museum is driven by our core values:
Preservation | Restoration | Conservation | Exploration | Stewardship | Education
In 2023, the Hutchings Museum joined the film as the fiscal sponsor. They are the perfect fit because they have deep roots in projects that support the Independent Trekking Guide Cooperative and help the people of KUMARI. All revenue from the film is being donated to the Museum which will then direct the funds directly into humanitarian efforts in KUMARI.
