The award-winning film “Highway to Dhampus” will be screened at Hearst Castle at 7 p.m. Oct. 17.
Those expected to attend the showing include writer-director Rick McFarland and actor Gunner Wright, who plays Colt Morgan in the film.
All net proceeds from ticket sales to the Hearst Castle Theater screening will go to Nepal via the U.S.-based charity organization Mind the Gap Worldwide (www.mindthegapworldwide.com). Funds will be used for rebuilding in the aftermath of a 7.9-magnitude earthquake that hit the country.
The movie itself was filmed almost entirely in Nepal. It focuses on the headmistress of a small orphanage there who receives a visit from a British socialite who’s trying to repair her public image by engaging in charity.
