Abstract: Ever since Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary famously became the first people to summit Mount Everest in 1953, the word Sherpa has become a byword for a porter, mountain guide or climber. But Sherpa is not just a job title, it is the name of an ethnic group of people who originate from Tibet, and now mostly live in the mountainous regions of Nepal. Not all Sherpas are climbers. With better education and more opportunities, they no longer have to risk their lives up in the world’s tallest peaks to support themselves and their families. My Name Is Sherpa & I Am Not a Climber is an interactive documentary that features eight stories of Sherpas who have moved away from their homes and are forging their own paths in Nepal’s capital city, Kathmandu. The documentary can be viewed at www.iamnotaclimber.com
