Green Gold 2

Project duration: June - July 2014
My role: Cinematographer for the parts filmed in India
In collaboration with : Rob Van Hattum (Director), Bidisha Das (Location sound recording and drone operation)
This is a documentary directed by Rob Van Hattum which looks at individuals in China, Egypt, Spain and India who are transforming large swathes of eroded or degraded land and turning them fertile. In India, we followed Jadav Payeng, a man who can been tirelessly single-handedly planting 1300acres of forest on what was previously eroded floodplains. Now the forest hosts various species of flora and fauna including several elephants, rhinos and tigers. We follow this brilliant man’s daily routine, his passion and commitment towards re-greening the earth.
