Mummy, mama and daddy; mummy, mama and sperm donor: The film Extended Family offers an intimate insight into two same-sex families' lives, who found a way to create their families within a legal grey zone in Switzerland. Swiss law bans access to adoption and any assisted reproductive medicine for same-sex couples. The portrayed families therefore do not exist officially. Nevertheless, according to estimations, there are between 6'000 and 30'000 children living in rainbow families across the country.

In Okharbot village of Western Nepal a few persons still know the age-old traditional practise of mining, smelting and casting of copper. The copper has a number of symbolic meanings and economic aspects connected to exchange and healing properties, as well as being the Hindu god Shiva. The complex caste system of Nepal, although abolished, still structures the lives of most people. The untouchable smiths, the Kami, produce one of the purest metals in Hindu cosmology. The film follows Ujir, the foreman, who guides the steps of the mining and smelting. During the smelting work the festival of Dassain took place in the village. The festival is part of the social and cultural context presented in the film along with the traditional smelting process of copper.
Dipesh Kharel is an independent documentary filmmaker from Nepal about to finish his PhD research in film and social anthropology at the University of Tokyo in Japan. He received a Master of Philosophy in documentary film studies from the University of Tromsø in Norway.
Frode Storaas is a professor of visual anthropology at the University Museum of Bergen, Norway. His anthropological research has mainly been with pastoralists in Eastern Africa.
