Diploma project (2015) by Josua Hotz
Fiction / 16min
Nirin is 6. His mother had promised they’d go on a lovely, long trip and Nirin is eagerly looking forward to discovering his country on a journey in a bush taxi, together with his two younger brothers. It’s the first time he’s leaving his native village in Madagascar. However, this great journey doesn’t turn out the way Nirin had imagined it.
The red earth. The endless road. The child who doesn't know where he is being taken. This simplicity, Josua did not find it without difficulty and it is a real path within himself that pushed him to make this sincere and moving film.
