Adventure Production Pictures Announces First Documentary Feature:
"Returned: Children Soldiers of Nepal 's Maoist Army"
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Atlanta, GA, August 28, 2007:
Adventure Production Pictures in association with Transcultural Psychosocial Organization – Nepal has announced that pre-production on a new documentary feature titled “Returned: Children Soldiers of Nepal’s Maoist Army” has begun.
"Returned: Children Soldiers of Nepal 's Maoist Army" is a long-form documentary that presents the stories of young children and teenagers whose lives have been shattered by war. They describe the day they were abducted from their village and forced to fight for the Maoist insurgency in Nepal. The film provides actual footage from the rural Nepali villages where these children were initially abducted, to the training camps where they were tortured and forces to obey insurgent leaders, to fighting on the front lines of the rebellion. It weaves the stories of children, and their stolen hopes and dreams, into an unforgettable examination of the rising epidemic of children used in armed conflicts.
Production on “Returned” begins in Kathmandu, Nepal on October 10, 2007. The crew will be comprised of a multi-cultural crew including Nepali nationals Rohit Karki and Pravesh Gurung (Silent Monsoon). The project will shoot in HD by cinematographer Scott Ippolito (Moved) and directed and produced by Emmy Award® nominated producer, Robert Koenig (The Wrestler’s Second & Nepali Maya).
