Veemsen’s film is based on true events and was inspired by a trip to Nepal two years ago. Reflecting on the experience Veemsen said; “I took a picture of kids sleeping with the dogs in the streets of Kathmandu. That picture made me make this film from my heart not from my mind."
The former Gurkha soldier left the armed forces and enrolled at Ravensbourne to study for his BA (Hons) in Digital Film Production. During his final year, he led a filming team of five Ravensbourne students, all of whom travelled to Nepal in order to shoot this moving film.
'Maya' features three young children who are forced to live on the streets in Kathmandu and work at a brick factory to survive. Their dream is to build a home of their own with the bricks they make.
