- Our Story
Rara Films made its humble beginning five years ago producing a multiple award winning documentary film named ‘Sunakali’. Directed by journalist turned filmmaker Bhojraj Bhat, Sunakali follows the journey of a bunch of young girls of western Himalaya of Nepal – one of the most impoverished and undeveloped regions of the country – who, despite all odds, go on to win a major football tournament. The film was critically acclaimed throughout the world as has received over 80 awards in more than 40 countries. As the film is based on football, football’s governing body – Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) – produced a special report on the movie and the girls entitled Meet the Himalayan Messi. Thanks to this documentary film, the girls’ team got opportunity to participate in Donosti Cup in Spain and also got opportunity to train with Athletic Bilbao’s women’s team in the Spanish city of Bilbao.
The global success of ‘Sunakali’ asserted the fact that there are numerous stories in the Nepal Himalayas that need to be told to the global audience. This encouraged Mr Bhat to expand Rara Films by bringing onboard best talents in the country to tell the stories of the Himalayas to the global audience. He partnered with entrepreneur and film enthusiast DB Karki to work on number of new projects.
Rara Films has worked as line producer/local producer with international companies like Arte TV, France 24, TF1, Canal+ and Babel Press, among others. Some of our new projects -- Mission Saipal and The Other World Cup -- are already under different phases of production.
