Nepal Turbine Documentary

Dear Mr. Piggot,

I am the director for a feature documentary about Tashi Bista and his dream to install a wind turbine in Namdok, a remote village nestled in Upper Mustang, Nepal. Tashi used your recipe book throughout the entire process. We have been filming with Tashi in Upper Mustang for about three years now and we are happy to announce that the film is complete.

The film really captures a moment in which Namdok is on the cusp of change. Tashi learned about wind turbines through a man named Jorge Ayaraza who currently lives in India. He’s been working with wind turbines for years now. We just wanted to share with you Tashi’s project and information about the film. We have attached a trailer below. We can not thank you enough for all your work and for all this information to be open source. It is amazing and has really transformed lives! So thank you very much!

We would be honored to communicate with you in the future. Thank you for your time.
