A Cinelan Film: cinelan.com/
From Ross Kauffman—the Academy Award winning Director of “Born Into Brothels.”
In 1985, a young man from a well-to-do family took a bicycle trip across southern Europe, wandered into Bangladesh, traveled through India, and vanished while hiking in the rugged foothills of the Himalayas. He was never seen or heard from again.
“Wait For Me” is the story of a mother’s spiritual and emotional search for her son—a ceaseless emotional trek, propelled by an unconditional love and an unwavering belief that he may still be alive.
This is a three minute piece but a much longer version is in production. More info @:
“An hour-long special made by Banksy charting the history of behaving badly in public, from anarchists and activists to attention seeking eccentrics. Contributors include Michael Fagan talking about breaking into the Queen’s bedroom: ‘I looked into her eyes, they were dark’; and Noel Godin, who pioneered attacking celebrities with custard pies: ‘Instead of a bullet I give them a cake’. Explaining his reasoning behind the show, Banksy said: ‘Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I’ve been working back from there’. (…) It includes a world exclusive first interview with the man responsible for putting the turf Mohican on Winston Churchill’s head.“
I saw this on several blogs and love it so much… don’t you just wanna “fly away” now?
3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..
= a trip of a lifetime.
