German retailer Otto departs from schmaltzy festive cheer in its Christmas ad set in the Bolivian mountains.
After a bus journey is derailed by a landslide, the passengers are dismayed to realise they will miss spending Christmas with their loved ones. But inspired by a girl singing Spanish Christmas classic Feliz Navidad, they come together to light candles and celebrate the holiday anyway. The film was directed by RSA Films’ Daniel Mulloy, who won a Bafta earlier this year for the short film Home. It was created by Lisa Yvonne Heimgartner and Lima Shengelia at Heimat Berlin.
