Yover

## ## ## ##

As the first gentle rays of sun shine through the forest, Yover gets up to start his day. He has a busy schedule ahead on his delivery bike. His route, though his home town, Bojayá, takes him past wooden huts and colourful clothes hung on washing lines. Employing an unusual film format, Edison Sánchez portrays daily life in a village that has regained its courage and lust for life after one of the worst tragedies of the Colombian conflict.
