Breaking News: My very own brother is a world-renowned documentary filmmaker! How do I know he is world-renowned? Because today an interview with him about his recent film on the situation of the Bhutanese refugees in Nepal was featured on the opening page of the website for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees--a site that gets hundreds of thousands of visitors a day, and that I have visited myself on numerous prior occasions. He has been in the South Asian press before, but this is Global Exposure. How thrilling! The Oscars are coming up in March--does somebody want to give The Academy a heads up about this bright new talent?
