Menstruating in a chaupadi hut in Nepal – vpro Metropolis

In many countries women live in isolation during their period. In Nepal even in poor circumstances. In a small hut next to the house where it's cold and wet these women live in fear of being attacked by wild animals. vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.
