The Incredible Story of Water
A story for children, based on artwork I did in the ’70s, with background music remixed from my CD ‘Gaia’s Garden’.
 The Great Day
My film is based on a book I wrote and illustrated in 1988. A Utopian vision, perhaps we could help make it come true?

I made this documentary for two friends who formed this NGO in the Kumaoan Himalayas, introducing technologies for energy and water in the villages, and then promoting crafts like hand made, naturally dyed, textiles.
Smiles From Off The Road in India
Faces I filmed while travelling in Uttarakhand Himalayas and Kerala (India). Their spontaneous welcome to me and my camera is typical of the warmth of people still living close to nature.
