For the last five decades, Baltazar Ushca has made a living harvesting glacial ice from the tallest mountain in Ecuador. His brothers, Gregorio and Juan, have long since retired from the mountain. This is a quiet tale of cultural change in a small indigenous community and how three brothers have adapted to it. In Spanish with English subtitles. Directed by Sandy Patch. Produced by Jeremy Yaches.
Shown with LONESOME GEORGE AND THE BATTLE FOR THE GALAPAGOS.
