The Trader (2018)

The Trader (2018) is a documentary film from Netflix that follows a travelling trader in the Republic of Georgia (near Russia). He buys second-hand items from the city (Tbilisi) and goes to the remote villages to sell them for exchange of Potatoes. Surprisingly, Potatoes are the main currency of exchange in the remote villages of Georgia.

Though it is short, the film shows us what the country life in these parts will be, and the aspirations of people living here.

It is available on Netflix.
