The Good Postman

Hyvä postimies

The Good Postman is a documentary about an almost deserted village on the edge of Europe. The movie tells the stories of the people of Great Derventwho have spent their entire lives on the border between East and the West, Islam and Christianity.

Great Dervent slowly approaches its natural sad end. The total population of the village is about 30 people and average age is over 60 years. The Syrian Crisis temporary “revives” the locals. Great Dervent is the first stop on the path to freedom for thousands of refugees. The foreigners trigger long forgotten emotions in the deserted village for one last time.
