Synopsis / Plot
Bolivia's proud air carrier LAB went bankrupt in 2008. But the workers still come to work, look after the planes and keep the place going – all without getting a single Boliviano for their troubles. And all in the hope that their company will one day be airborne again. The Danish filmmaker Sebastian Cordes has made an almost photographic portrait of a determined but toughly challenged community, which defies the crisis and refuses to let itself be thrown off the track. But when you – like one of the airline's pilots tells us without blinking, in a scene that is bound to give anyone a tremendous fear of flying – has tried to crash-land a plane after a bomber has blown himself to pieces three kilometres up in the air, you have seen it all. Life in the living ruin of a hangar continues, and when Lloyd Aereo Boliviano one day gets its license back, there will be both life jackets under the seats and paperwork that is in order. 'A Place Called Lloyd' is a stylistically and photographically complete portrait of a resilient community.
