Karakoram Revisited

Over the last few weeks I have been spending more time thinking about how to break some inertia and get back to work on a documentary.  In 2009 I went to K2 in order to shoot a documentary about Vittorio Sella and his trip there in 1909 with the Duke of Abruzzi.

Over the last couple of years there were hurdles both personal and financial that needed to be jumped in order for me to even see the footage I shot.

I shot over a mile of Super 16mm film on the trip and was able to finally get it all developed and transferred within the last year.  Now, that I have the footage I’m able to see what is there and move forward on a project.  It still hasn’t fully shown itself to me yet but with every day it gets closer to coalescing in to a real film.

As of now it seems to be moving toward a short film that deals with the Balti people of the Karakoram.  You can read more about the trip in my past entries “Pakistan 2009-People” and a “Ethics in Documentary”.

Stay tuned for updates.
