I'm parked on the floor in Los Angeles International, running on two hours of sleep and lost in that magical moment of reflection that occurs when one is about to embark on a journey. In just under two years from the completion of filming Tracking Patagonia, I am proud to report that I'm headed back to South America with a finished film in my pocket.
It is hard to know what to expect when you produce a work of art and send it back out into the world for others to see. This is the constant journey of the artist and creator... it pushes us to cross the boundary between ourselves and others, and will often lead us to surprising results.
I hope you will enjoy following along with Tracking Patagonia's return to the people who inspired it. I will be blogging about the screenings and events I am able to arrange in the coming weeks, and the surprises and discoveries that will inevitably arise along the way.
I would also like to wish you all a wonderful 2010, may you see your dreams come to fruition and may your endeavors come full circle in the years to come.
See you in Chile!
