Fairytale of Kathmandu – clip

The documentary focused on visits by the poet Cathal Ó Searcaigh to Nepal during which he had close relationships with many young men of 16 years old or older. The documentary questioned whether Ó Searcaigh’s relationships with these youths were exploitative and whether they demonstrated a power and wealth imbalance between the 50 year old Ó Searcaigh and the young Nepalese.
