Movie On The House (MOTH)

Institute for Integrated Development Studies (IIDS)’ Movie on the House (MOTH) series is a monthly film/documentary screening which is followed by an interactive discussion with an area expert. The idea is to watch well-known documentaries that expand the themes and theories learned in classrooms and apply them to Nepal’s socio-economic and political policy-context. To contextualize the themes, a national expert will be roped in for every documentary broadcasted. Students, post-graduate students from various universities from different streams, in-house scholars, academics, practitioners, and journalists will watch the documentary.
