Pad Yatra – A Green Odyssey

Winner of ten International Awards, including Best Documentary and Audience Award Winner at three different festivals, PAD YATRA: A Green Odyssey is the harrowing adventure of 700 people, trekking across the Himalayas with a call to save the planet’s “3rd Pole,” a glacial region now devastated by the climate chaos associated with global warming.

Battling the most treacherous terrain on earth, they spread their message of ecological compassion through human’s most basic means –by walking on foot, village to village, and showing by example.

Barely surviving injuries, illness, and starvation, the trekkers emerge with nearly half a ton of plastic litter strapped to their backs, triggering an historic green revolution across the rooftop of the world.

*Shot with solar power by Himalayan monk Ngawang Sodpa, the film features United Nations MDG Honoree the Gyalwang Drukpa, and Aamir Khan. The film is executive produced by Michelle Yeoh, narrated by Daryl Hannah, and is the debut feature documentary from Director Wendy J. N. Lee.

PAD YATRA: A Green Odyssey has a running time of 71 minutes and will not be rated by the MPAA. The film will open in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Music Hall on November 15, 2013.

Kaojikara (Short Film)

 

Director : Eric Dinkian
Cast : Karin Shibata, Xavier Legrand, Alexandre Leycuras, Françoise Durand, Thomas Baudeau, Daravith Chan Fah, Monirith Chan Fah, Mathieu Blandin, Serge Ferreira, Isabelle Glais, Sébastien Magne & Olivier Yves

Synopsis
A young Japanese woman living in a western country wakes up one morning and realises that her boyfriend has undergone a strange transformation – his face has disappeared and in it’s place now is a blurry and deformed mass of flesh. After barely escaping her home, she begins to realise that she might have been the only one to escape this strange mutation.

Kaojikara is an experience for the senses. It evolves around the themes of loneliness and alienation induced by cultural differences. For this film we have chosen the means of the imaginary metaphor – instead of the classic storytelling techniques – in order to give the viewer the possibility to “feel” the story.

In order to give our audience a feeling of uncharacteristic intensity, Kaojikara was filmed in Japanese, given a fast and ever evolving pace, alternating between colour and black and white photography, with over 200 shots of special effects and given a very specific and complex soundtrack.
