Description

Two films for the price of one!

Dugout
Ben and James have been on several 'adventures' together, from pulling a sofa across southern England to swimming the length of a knee deep river in Dorset. Making films about their trips has become a part of the journey. They wanted to build on these journeys in their latest project but also make something about more than themselves - to capture the beauty of the landscape, the people and the wildlife they encountered would have to be more important than any distance or number of miles they could travel.

It was with this in mind that they came up with the idea of DugOut, an idea as simple as the name suggests: they would travel to the Ecuadorian Amazon, live with an indigenous community, learn from them how to build a canoe, then take that canoe on a journey…

The film covers the two month trip, documenting their time in the Huaorani community as they built a dugout canoe, then the journey downstream through Ecuador's Yasuni region - one of the most biodiverse areas of the world.

Duration 53mins

On a remote mountaintop a brave social experiment is taking place.

Former Buddhist monk Lobsang was trained under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama but 8 years ago left a life as a spiritual teacher in the United States to create a unique community in the foothills of the Himalayas which rescues orphaned and neglected children.

5 year-old Tashi is the newest arrival. Her mother recently passed away and she's been abandoned by heralcoholic father. Wild and troubled, Tashi is struggling to find her place amongst 84 new siblings.

Can the community's love and compassion transform Tashi's alienation and tantrums into a capacity to make her first real friend?
