What a darling! Very simple idea, charming main character, a film for all ages about a young student, who earns his money as a porter, and carries a coca cola fridge up the mountain to a place where it can be repaired. He meets people on his way, he talks to them, and thus we get to know about the living conditions in this far away Nepalese mountain area.
”The tourists always take photos of us but they never send them”, and old man says to the film crew. And this is just one of the many fine situations caught by the young Serbian film team, who get so much – probably – because they are considered to be tourists.
The film has the goal to point at the situation for 60.000 porters in this small country – and it does so in an unconventional, light tone. A creative and very promising documentary for the young Serbian team. And chapeau for Iikka Vehkalahti YLE who has supported the film project that he met during the Esodoc Training programme.
