We’re filming in Africa this week, shooting a documentary for UNESCO-IHE and the WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) about Kenya’s Mara River and the pressure on shared water resources. Working with a team of Kenyan and Dutch professionals – amazing landscapes, great people and phenomenal skies.
We’re in Palestine this week, continuing our work with UNESCO-IHE on a film about global water resources, conservation and education. We’re filming at Birzeit University outside Ramallah, where Palestine’s leading water engineers are teaching future generations about the importance of water conservation. Inspiring people, doing all that they can, but a frustrating and sad situation.
Our film about Norway’s ice music festival is a finalist in the 2013 Banff Mountain Film Festival. Something of a personal triumph for me as I saw the Banff festival tour about 10 years ago in a tiny cinema in Fernie, deep in the Canadian rockies, and was so impressed by the quality of the films and the audience that I’ve always wanted to be part of the festival.
