Ora, o SENHOR disse a Abrão: Sai-te da tua terra, da tua parentela e da casa de teu pai, para a terra que eu te mostrarei.
E far-te-ei uma grande nação, e abençoar-te-ei e engrandecerei o teu nome; e tu serás uma bênção.
E abençoarei os que te abençoarem, e amaldiçoarei os que te amaldiçoarem; e em ti serão benditas todas as famílias da terra.
A DAY WITH THE FRIESSER
BOLIVIA - 2019
Avoid crowdings, public transportation, work from home, grow your own food, avoid shopping and grocery stores if possible...
Nowadays, social distancing measures encourage many to a more 'isolated' life. The Friesser family, however, as most Mennonites, have been reducing social contacts with other towns for decades, obviously for extremely different reasons.
Months before the pandemic, I started the project "A day with the Friessers" with the original purpose of showing how teenagers and children faces the challenges of living a restricted life and their relationship with nearby towns. However, the shooting took a couple of days as I was planning to go back and spend Easter and a few weeks with the Friesser - all paused due to the pandemic.
