Solo un cargador (Porter)
A beautiful documentary exquisitely filmed about the hard life of the cargadores who trek through the mountains and jungles of Peru with baggage on their backs. An anonymous porter narrates this short documentary while hauling strangers’ gear. His thoughts extend beyond material concerns and give way to a series of intimate and intense reflections on his life in a world that will never be fair. The film has won numerous awards for best short, including from the American Institute Film Festival and the Festival International du film d’Aubagne.
