The Last Inhabitant Of Europe's Highest Village Is A 78-Year-Old Man

By

78 year old Irakli Khvedaguridze is the last inhabitant of Europe’s highest village, Bochorna nestled in the Caucasus Mountains of Teshi, Georgia. The village stands at an altitude of 7,694′. The area used to be filled with a bustling community of farmers and herders, but only one man remains.

The film below is a beautiful tribute to Irakli’s dedication to his home. He refuses to move despite his isolation, and the fact that the village is only being accessible by helicopter in the winter.

I really enjoyed this short film by Ben Page, and I believe that you will too.
