The Eldest Son

In order to get his family out of debilitating debt, a young man gambles on the promise of a migrant labor job in Malaysia. While he is away, a devastating earthquake in his home of Nepal makes his success all the more urgent.

Join us for a Q&A with the filmmakers following the screening, and a brief panel discussion with Natalie Williams, Associate Professor of Sociology and International Studies, and Sauharda Rai, PhD student in International Studies.
