From the Daily Dot

Director Tamta Gabrichidze's award-winning documentary looks at the poverty-stricken Republic of Georgia. The country is so poor that potatoes are often more valuable to the citizens than money. Enter Gela, a travelling merchant who sells second-hand clothing and household items in exchange for spuds. The documentary is a potent 25 minutes long, but that is plenty of time for Gabrichidze to capture the struggle and hopelessness Georgia's residents face.
