Sabagiro by Lisa Matthys

“Sabagiro” is a 10 minute video about traveling. In Chiatura, an industrial city in Georgia, inhabitants are still using the old cable car system which was built in the fifties to transport workers around the valley and up to the mines. Today only 20% of the system is still in use.

In a rusty cabin crossing the valley, people meet, chat or sit still while staff members manage the system with old buttons and handlebars. The video shows the interaction between these people during their daily life in a very unusual scenery.
