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.

We will climb the mountain by the West Face Gully. We will camp Saturday night at 9000 feet, attempt the summit on Sunday and return to our cars before night. The route is not nearly as crowded as the normal route and, although a little more difficult, the solitude and beauty make it worth the extra effort. Participants must have training in self-arrest and feel competent that they can use their skills if needed. Contact: 408-779-2320; gvangorden@gmail.com
