If you’ve ever made a trek along a remote trail in just about any corner of the world you probably already know the role that porters play on those journeys. But for many, their stories remain untold, as they are often the forgotten heroes of any expedition or travel experience. But some friends of mine are looking to share at least some of those tales, starting with the porters who work along the Inca Trail in Peru. To do that, they’re looking to create a documentary that shares the experiences of these men and women with the world and to that end they’ve launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $15,980 to get their project off the ground. The video above is a trailer of sorts to share what they have in mind, and judging from what we’ve seen here, this could be amazing. Check out the video above and then head on over to the Indiegogo page to contribute to the cause if you feel its worthy. I know I’m already looking forward to the full film.
