"The Tattooed Trucks of Nepal - Horn Please"
Available to Stream now
Live Zoom Discussion with Filmmakers – Monday, May 23 at 7pm

Award-winning 40-minute documentary film “TATTOOED TRUCKS OF NEPAL – HORN PLEASE” is an upbeat documentary that celebrates Nepalis and their culture through a vibrant new artform: the paintings on their freight trucks. Set in the context of Nepal’s artistic legacy, the film introduces the talents of self-taught painters, who work by commission in order to share what is important to the trucker. Their subject matter provides a window into Nepali culture and includes truck protection, displays of spirituality, love of family, sports, and new and old traditions. Representations of Lord Ganesh, European soccer heroes, Bob Marley and a salute to Avril Lavigne are among the creative images displayed on these moving ‘canvases’ as they travel Nepal’s dangerous mountain roads.

The film is created and narrated by long time SDPCA member Ron Ranson who worked as a teacher in Nepal as a member of Group 4 – 1964-66.

Watch the film in your own home before May 23 (link to view film is in the E-vite) and join us for the Talk Back with Ron and Nicola Ranson plus other members of the film’s creative team (some joining us from Nepal) on Zoom.
