Cinematic Travel: Colors And Cultures Of India

Located in South Asia, India sits on a peninsula that extends between the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. The country, the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, is the world’s second most-populous nation after China.

For many years of its long history, India faced incursions from the north by Turks, Arabs, Persians and others. By the 19th century, Great Britain became the dominant power on the subcontinent. After years of nonviolent struggle against British rule, India gained its independence in 1947.

Travel Views: Lapinha Da Serra In Eastern Brazil

Located in the Santana do Riacho district, in the Serra do Cipó region , Lapinha da Serra is the perfect destination for lovers of nature, gastronomic tourism, adventure sports and those looking for peace, rest and energy. The region is surrounded by beautiful waterfalls, true postcards, has a wide variety of lodging facilities, excellent restaurants and a great calendar of events.

The concept of travel has changed a lot in recent years and we believe that post-pandemic tourism will be different as well. As we’ve already talked about here, the idea is to forget about “seeing as much as possible” and thinking about “living as much as possible”. It’s about slowing down, taking the time to see, experience and, above all, connect – it’s a total immersion in a new place or culture, connecting to yourself and your surroundings and encouraging a more meaningful travel experience.

In June of 2021 we went to Lapinha da Serra, a community located in Serra do Cipó, 136 km from Belo Horizonte. We recorded wonderful images and had unique experiences. This is a film about experiences and connections. The focus is on the journey itself – be present and enjoy each moment.

Western Africa Cultures: Along The Senegal River

In human cultures in general, and perhaps particularly in Africa, the landscape is the first shrine of tradition. From the sand dunes of Mauritania to the currents of River Senegal, to the Lions of the Beninese savannah to the spirits of the forests of Gabon, this series explores the origin, the nature and the survival of deep links between several populations in West Africa and their habitat.

Each episode takes us to discover an emblematic landscape: the river (Senegal), the desert (Mauritania), the forest (Gabon) and the savannah (Benin). A compass of escape and meeting which rests on two main pillars: the spectacular character of the places, often classified with the UNESCO world heritage, and the charisma of the main characters who are transmitters of their respective traditions.
