The Hardest Climbs have the Best Views
After several months of continuous filming, we are happy to announce that we have begun the editing process of this film. Per our Kickstarter timeline, we are right on track! This past fall has taken us to many incredible locations all throughout Kumaon, interviewing unforgettable people in some of India’s most beautiful landscapes. After sitting with all the footage, I am frankly blown away by what we’ve been able to capture. We know that you will be too.
We are astonished at how well our project has been received on the ground. With each new village we traverse, with every new farmer we interview, as habitat destruction rages on, we rediscover the immediacy of our message. This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for having received your loving support to be given the privilege to bring this passion project to life. Most of all, we are humbled by the Kumaonis who have let us use the media of film to let them tell their own story to the world.
The next few months will be crucial in shaping the film. With so much phenomenal footage, finding which clips to cut will be the most difficult process. The incline ahead may be steeper than we’ve ever known, arms threatening to buckle from the weight. But if we look below, we can’t believe how far we’ve come. The air is thinner, blood is thicker, but sometimes, the hardest climbs have the best views.
