Bamboo Stories

Shaheen Dill-Riaz

Germany, Bangladesh / 2019 / 96' / Italian premiere

DOCUMENTARY

FRAGILE FRIENDS

It is midsummer in northeastern Bangladesh. Five men face a dangerous mission. They must conquer the great river with their raft. Their journey will last a month and take them 300 kilometers downstream. Their cargo: 25,000 bamboo logs. During daytime, endless heat, pouring rain and dangerous rapids keep the men on their toes. At night, river pirates lurk in the darkness for easy prey. But it is worth it for the men, who all make the journey as part of their very own struggles for existence.
