Earth Train welcomes Jane Goodall and Roots & Shoots Leaders from 12 countries to Panama
Jane Goodall Roots and Shoots - Official Trailer
A short film for the Jane Goodall Institute / the Earth Train Organization, that will be used to promote her environmental work in Central and South America. The film was shot over five days deep in the Mamoní Valley Preserve. We carried all the gear, including 200 lb. generators, through daily downpours, across rivers, and while walking in knee-deep mud. The humidity was so high that we had to clean and blow dry hundreds of pieces of equipment every night before packing them in boxes of silica to prevent rust from forming overnight.
The film was produced and directed by Pituka Heilbron's company - Hypatia Films.
Sony of Latin America has come on board as a sponsor and donated to Earth Train four HD video cameras. Earth Train has sent them off to Roots & Shoots youth groups in Argentina, Boliva, Mexico and Panama. We expect to receive material from these four Roots & Shoots groups which Pituka will edit and incorporate into the final film.
The Panorama Magazine at COPA Airlines covered the conference with this article written by Roberto Quintero with photos of Luis Eduardo Guillén.
