Postman, 2022, 25', Kyrgyzstan



There was a queue at the postoffice of the village of Kok-Tash, in the Leilek district. Today is the day of the pension issue and the villagers, every now and then, looking at the small window of the money issue, start their lively conversation. Meanwhile, the postman is working behind the wall. His working day is very stressful, full of worries and responsibility. He must give the pension and benefits from the district center to fellow villagers in time, and overcome kilometers of mountainous terrain on foot to get to the neighboring village of Deine, located on the border with Tajikistan. Due to the lack of personnel, he has to serve these two villages for many years-in frost, rain and heat.
