In the calm before the storm, climbing to the highest place in Brazil, my host country as the world descends into madness. Time to take in something beautiful and let my spirit rest before the inevitable chaos heading this way.
A few wandering shots from a short weekend visit to Curitiba, Brazil. It’s a long winding climb up from the coast. The altitude gives the place more of a Pacific Northwest vibe than the rest of Brazil, which is now sweltering through mid-summer.
I’m in Brazil to screen the film with some participants. It’s an opportunity to reconnect without the camera and get their feedback to ensure they feel well represented by what I’ve put together. It’s been an amazing time. We’ve all matured in the two years since I first started filming, and I’ve enjoyed following Ale, Cata and the rest of the crew as they do workshops around the south of Brazil.
Vancouver in May is flamboyant, beautiful, chaotic, energetic. A short stay punctuated with sun, beach and positive vibes.
