Hari Rai is a 17-year-old student who lives in a small Himalayan village in Nepal. To support himself and pay for his education, he works as a porter. In this documentary, Hari is hired to carry a CocaCola refrigerator to a repair shop, and the footage follows him through Nepal’s stunning mountainscape – past tourist-filled hot springs, Buddhist temples, herds of goats and small villages. The four-day transport is a poignant portrait of child labor in modern-day Nepal.
This Adventure Film Festival screening, the first of our “First Monday” films, is free.
