    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    The Himalayan Mountains are one of the most remote and seldom visited regions of the world. It is a land of great spiritual strength for the few who call it home and the even fewer that travel there to find that strength within themselves. That inner search is precisely what drove us, a team of four friends and adventurers to take a 25 day trek that will span more than 295 miles through some of the highest and oldest passes of the Indian Himalayas.

    But we aren’t doing this documentary for adventure’s sake alone – we want to tell a story. Recently, plans to pave a large road through some of the most remote areas of this region have been set to action. Slow degradation of the natural environment and damage to the cultural integrity of these societies are amongst the many risks we see resulting from the development now occurring within Ladakh. We, along with our guide/translator will be travelling to these old Buddhist villages to gauge the opinions of the peoples bound to be most affected.

    Our aim is to capture this entire journey on film. On one end, it is the struggles and obstacles of four friends trying to bring some semblance of meaning into their technology-laden disenchanted lives, and on the other end, it is the awe-inspiring beauty of a remote region currently being threatened by the ravages of globalization. And in telling our story, we are hoping to bring some more clarity to this issue. The conclusion to this documentary is indeed an open ended question, and that’s precisely the beauty of venturing into the wide unknown with open minds and open hearts.
