In the last week of February Danny Schmidt, a documentary film maker and skateboarder from Salt Lake City, US, came with his friend Zag for a visit. We’ve been talking for more than a year about this – and finally they came. The two of them stayed in Janwaar Village in our homestays and they also spent two nights with me down by the river … Both said: “An awesome experience! We will be back for sure!”
In the village – besides skateboarding – they spent a lot of time with the kids, interviewing them and their parents. Below are a few scenes. The idea is to make a profound documentary on our story – telling it from the eyes of the villagers.
The kids took their chance and the camera and went through the village. They always love to do this 🙂
And evening time was fun time as well … they all enjoyed each others company.
At the treehouse in Madla where I live, evenings were more calm. It was nature pure. Even though it was still cold in the mornings, Danny and Zag went for a swim – and I watched from the terrace ready to give alarm if a crocodile would come in sight.
