+ LIFE IN MOTION

Creating intriguing motion is one of the greatest pleasures of filmmaking.

I try to capture what lives in my soul: intense embracement of the world around us and deep curiosity of the miraculous of being.
Textures, shapes, lines, colors and composition help to convey a message and reflect an inner -and deeper- dimension of emotions.


 
 

A MAOIST TOWN IN MODERN CHINA

It was hard to find, but worth to have a look. A journey to the revolutionary China of the 1950's, where even portraits of Marx, Engels, Stalin and Lenin are represented on the main square. Propaganda from speakers, no advertising billboards, portraits of the Chairman everywhere... On the rainbow is written: "Mao Zedong thought will shine forever". Yes, this is all real... It is not a park nor a tourist attraction. When I took out my drone, the adrenaline was enormous. The local police man was fascinated and (maybe because of his enthusiasm?) he let me do my thing...

In 1916, the Hershey Chocolate Corporation of Pennsylvania (USA) purchased large parts of land in Cuba and built a sugar mill 45 km east of Havana, Cuba. To transport its produce (sugar) to nearby ports ands its workers to adjacent towns in Cuba, this authentic Hershey train -steam-powered and dating 1917- was built. It still rides !
