Filmed over seven years, Drawing the Tiger is an intimate portrait of a family in Nepal who get a chance to break their cycle of poverty: Their brightest child is awarded a scholarship to attend school in the city. When her life ends tragically, the family is forced to survive without her and her education—the opportunity they believed would change their fate. It is the story of the power of girls’ education from the perspective of its absence. ** 2015 Hot Docs Film Festival
