Bishnu grew up in the hills of rural Nepal as a Dalit, or "untouchable". Despite the harsh discrimination Bishnu received, she never quit. She eventually went to school in Katmandu and the United States, receiving an honorary doctorate to top things off.  Now she helps run the non-profit Empowering Dalit Women of Nepal in the same communities and hills she used to run around in as a little girl.  Untouchable is a 17 minute film that follows Bishnu's story as she travels home.  The film received official selection at the Portland International Film Festival and Social Justice Film Festival.
