GABRIEL AND THE MOUNTAIN
The moutain cost Gabriel Buchmann's life. His round-the-world journey ended in Malawi, where his friend Fellipe Barbosa followed his trail with a camera, celebrating and question his travel bug. A critical and sympathetic portrait of a globetrotter and idealist, which flirts with exotic appeal and reflects the impossibility of ever walking in another's shoes.
