Ice Merchants of Huandoy

[synopsis]
Ice Merchants of Huandoy is a 17 minute narrative documentary that
offers a rare glimpse into the ancient Andean tradition of extracting
glacial ice for trade and subsistance. It is a tale told in the voice
of Maji, an 82 year old grandmother who has walked the same ancient
mountain trail with three generations of family. Photographed in
classical 16mm, this color film offers insights into the sights and
sounds of life in the high Peruvian Andes in vivid cinematic
detail.
