‘Co-Husband (Sahayak Shreeman)', a documentary about the theme of polyandry, an age-old social tradition of Nepal, has been nominated for two big international film festivals.

The documentary has been nominated for the 18th Tegernsee International Mountain Film Festival in Germany and the 29th International Film Festival of Mountain Films Poprad in Slovakia. The festivals will kick off on October 13-17.

The documentary will be screened in both the festivals simultaneously on October 15, said the film’s director Ganesh Panday.

It will also be shown in the South Asian Film Festival to be held in Washington DC on October 1-24, he said.

“It is a matter of pride for Nepal and its people for this Nepali documentary to be nominated for international film festivals,” said elated Panday.

The film about the unique practice of polyandry (the custom of brothers in a single-family marrying the same woman) that is still prevailing in some mountainous districts of Nepal, won the ‘Grand Prix Award’ in the 19th International Cannes Festival held in Russia last year.

Likewise, it bagged the best film award in the Nepal International Film Festival (NIFF). The award carries a purse of USD 1,000.
