After the April 2015 earthquake, Gatlang, a small village in the Langtang Valley mountains, faces a complicated situation that endangers their cultural identity.
With almost 10,000 people dead, Nepal faces the titanic task of rebuilding and providing aids to the population. In this context, is where these people see their ancestral lifestyle endangered.
"Cuatro Paredes" is a cry for help from the people of Gatlang and its neighbors in the Langtang Valley. A threatened culture, in a country where economic power looks in another direction.
The aid that the government of Nepal distributes in the towns affected by the earthquake, are forcing its habitants to rebuild their homes leaving the ancestral architecture of their ethnic groups.
About the director
This documentary is product of my concern to use the audiovisual tools within my reach, with productive purposes for society. After many years in the world of entertainment and advertising, I prefer to spend my time in telling the stories that shake my heart.
From the first moment I set foot in the valley of Langtang, I knew I had to tell this story. I only hope that the effort put by the whole team of people behind this "small" but huge project, will give voice to these people.

Why do we need your help?
In the first recording phase, which we have already done, we have obtained important interviews for the documentary, but our capacity is limited. We have produced the first phase without intermediaries and financing the project ourselves, but we need your help to carry out the second one.
