Where the hills are greener

Caplongue is a small village of 80 inhabitants in the South of France where the Loco-Motivés association was created in 2012. Its vision is to produce and deliver local food, respectful of nature and animals, in the friendliest way possible. Through a series of personal and poetic portraits, we follow Isabelle, Jean-Marc, Vincent and the others over the course of a year as they pursue their ideal.

Profile Project : Freddy Candia

Freddy Candia is a very helpful man. Low height and great speaker, he’s the master of improvisation, be it on civil construction, mechanics or even at the kitchen, always with a big smile in his face and a ready made gag. He had a troubled childhood, was raised at the countryside and left the house early to face life. Nowadays Freddy founded his NGO, CECAM Bolivia, which constructs ecological bathrooms, solar oven and economic kitchens for areas with less favored families.
(This film is part of Profile Project, a project that seeks inspiring people all over the world in order to transform our society.)
[About Profile Project ]
The project profile is ABOUT PEOPLE TO THE PEOPLE.
In a period where companies have more say than regular people, where machines make more than hands, Perfil Project looks for the humanisation of life. It explores if that humans could be concomitant of the same race.
We’re searching for people with stories and/or unique skills e.g. artists, chefs, storyteller, gardeners, tailors, carpenters, housewives, builders, musicians, entrepreneurs and people who can transmit the beauty of being a regular person, different or no.
Going against the celebration and worship of spectacle culture, the project will create mini profiles of interesting individuals that can instruct, inspire and open up new horizons with their particular skills, for all the culture, creativity and love that’s around.

Rescue Me!

Can you live a day without plastic?
Do you realize how much plastic do we use in a daily basis?
Watch this short documentary with a plastic challenge for teachers, administration and students of the school. A film made by the Visual Art High Schooler students, from Ruamrudee International School in Bangkok, in order to create awareness about plastic consumption.
This film is part of the Film Workshop by the Brazilian artists Lara Jacoski and Patrick Belem, which the students are taught how to make a film from the subject plastic. After classes of sustainability of the city the students live in and classes on how to make a film from beginning to end, the students make their own video at their school creating awareness in a substantial scale.
This project has an ideal to teach art and sustainability altogether by reaching some aspects of rubbish, decomposition and recycling, being able to think about our environment and how to keep it as clean as possible. Hopping also to plant a seed with our believes of having a better world to live in and being able to help the next generation.
