In July of this year I will be traveling to Ladakh, a northern region of India, to create a stunning documentary about the communities there. The people have had their lives turned upside down by government rationing the main source of heat and light, Kerosene. I am going to accompany the Alta Solar Project, a non profit, as they return to asses the effectiveness of their initial mission in the region. They delivered solar panels to 40 families in mountainous terrain to ease their burden on kerosene, an expensive and harmful lighting agent. I need YOUR help to make this film happen. All humans share basic desires. We want happiness. We want comfort. We want hope. We want to belong to a community. I wish to explore these themes in a culture that remains largely untouched by the Western world. These people want the same basic things we do, but they live now in a way none of us could imagine. I wish to expose their beauty and hardships in their own words, and within that truth, tell a story of humanity in a remote landscape of stark beauty, a universal story of light in the darkness.
