This one has been an exciting challenge for me under many aspects.
I had a huge amount of material, around 120 hours of footage that Nicolò had brought back from the remote Indian region of Ladakh after 4 years of travelling in the area. The contents were massive too, spanning from climate change to the loss of cultural identities, from the impacts of mass tourism to ethnic conflicts and political tensions. Then beyond editing, I also wrote the original score along with Matteo Milani. And last but not least, we did it in the middle of a global pandemic.
It was a tough ride but I was really involved, the crew was made of friends and I enjoyed every step of it.
