After his studies, Andrew Krakower gained attention with his first film, THE CHILDREN’S WAR (2010), which was honored by the UN, among others, for its look at the horrors of the Ugandan civil war. Krakower then spent eight years writing, teaching, and researching in Nepal. YARNE can be considered a cinematic product of these times.
