Director & cinematographer
In November 2017, twelve indigenous leaders gathered at the United Nations in New York to create an energy of healing for the current state of our planet. We interviewed each one of them in their home contexts before continuing the journey to New York. We followed four of the twelve, who travelled for the first time from the jungles of Gabon, the isolated coast of Siberia, the mountains of Colombia, and the deserts of Botswana.
Geographically diverse, the twelve leaders' messages are unified around what needs to be done to change the course our planet is taking. Mindfulness may be mainstream, but this film delves into the depths of what it really means to be human. The subject matter is serious, but the characters bring a sense of humour and warmth to the narrative, as we experience the journey through their eyes.
