By Melanie Langpap - Discussant
Having ten years of practice in fiction-, documentary films and news (e.g. author NDR, production manager “space sailors”, 1st AD “Tailor made dreams”) Melanie Langpap joined “Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit” (GIZ) as a consultant in 2011. She made five documentaries about the „German contribution to the peace process in Nepal“ (eponymous title, DVD). Her audiovisual work afterwards focuses on the “Nepal Peace Trust Fund” (NPTF) with its contribution on the peace building process (e.g. support to former Maoist Army combatants, Conflict Affected Persons, Elections). The idea is to make best of audiovisual media in the ongoing process of democratization and in close cooperation with the Nepal government, civil society and international donor agencies.
