A Quest to Bring Internet to a Far-Flung Part of the World

Jan 27, 2016 | 477 videos
Video by Clemens Purner

The Annapurna region of Nepal is stunning and remote—and for years, Mahabir Pun used to walk for days to the nearest town just to check his emails. This short film, Hiking for Emails, tells the story of Pun and his crusade to bring Internet to thousands of Nepalese. The film was directed by Clemens Purner; for more of his work you can visit his website.
