The Kyrgyz Organisation CBT (Kyrgyz Community Based Tourism Association) made an advertisement in an alpine newspaper with the help of a Swiss Tourist. They were looking for a cheese maker to teach interested women in a mountain region village in Arslanbob about cheese making. Maike Oestreich, a cheese maker and farmer based in Switzerland decided to spend her summer in the Kyrgyz mountains for once rather than on an alp in Switzerland. She has never crossed the borders of Europe before.
The movie shows, how this specific knowledge is transferred and transformed in a completely different context and what kind of problems arise, when different actors with theirs different intentions are involved in a kind of voluntary development aid project.
The filmmaker was following the cheese maker from her working place in the alpine dairy in Sufers in Switzerland to the world’s largest walnut forest in Arslanbob to accompany and observe her ongoing project.

Ramona Helena Sonderegger is Primary teacher and has BA in Social Anthropology, Psychology and Political Sciences at the University of Zurich.

The film is poetic portrayal of a young woman who, eager to be an active citizen, is trying to come to terms with a complicated history of the continent. Alana Hunt is a curator in Aboriginal community art center. White employees work with Aboriginal artists who tell the history of the Aboriginal nation Giya throught art. Alana tries to help others in all possible ways which makes her more of a social worker and a close friend of the local people. The complicated postcolonial situation in Australia forces her to the question the client-based approach ant the actual contribution of the white people to the Aboriginal community.
