THE RAFT    (1973)

aka Het vlot
aka La Balsa

Directed and produced by
George Sluizer

An intimate account of a thousand kilometer journey on a river in the Northeast of Brazil on a  self-made raft carrying a small household including two children. The raft is the means of transport since time immemorial and the journey to the town of Teresina lasts about a month. Life in slow-motion, with fleeting encounters along the banks. When the family arrives in Teresina, the merchandise is sold, the raft dismanteld, branch by branch, leaf by leaf.
