Fuzzscape: Gaurhya Gaun follows Kathmandu-based music producers Rajan Shrestha and Rohit Shakya to Gaurhya Gaun in western Nepal, the home of theatre artist Pranab Akash. They explore the rich landscape and culture of the Tharu community through the eyes and lives of Pranab and his family. This exploration expands when they learn about the history of the Tharu community and their fight against oppression. As Pranab’s father taught him, “when oppressors try to erase a people’s identity and existence, you sing and dance the resistance.”

Prasiit Sthapit is a visual storyteller based in Kathmandu.
