When the passion of a farmer meets the passion of a filmmaker...
Alan, a young italian farmer, who loves his job, has always dreamed of working with heavy machinery on big fields.
One day he decides to fulfill his dream and finds the cotton in Australia. (This film vimeo.com/10834256 called "He has a dream" helped him to get the job !)
Immediately, I advised him to buy a small HD camera and bring back the maximum of footage.
Also I gave him some advice on how to film. This was the first time he shot video.
After 9 months of hard work and loneliness, he returned tired but happy, rich in experiences and...a hard disc full of surprising images.
I was touched and inspired, not only by these images but also by the stories he told me.
I decided immediately to make a fast and concentrated summary of this adventure.
Bravo Alan ...cause you did it ! ;-)
