Courtesy of Mini International Magazine, ‘food architect’ Sam Boompass takes us on ‘mini’ cultural tour of Bermondsey’s ever changing food landscape. Everything from traditional Manze’s pie & mash, the new Maltby Street Market and contemporary restaurant Zucca’s are all worth sampling.
The ‘mini’ documentary was shot over two full days using Sony F3, FS700 and Canon 5d11. Directed and edited by Yann Jones & Daniel Lumb.
Twenty years ago, David Milarch, a northern Michigan nurseryman with a penchant for hard living, had a vision: angels came to tell him that the earth was in trouble. Its trees were dying, and without them, human life was in jeopardy. The solution, they told him, was to clone the champion trees of the world—the largest, the hardiest, the ones that had survived millennia and were most resilient to climate change—and create a kind of Noah’s ark of tree genetics. Without knowing if the message had any basis in science, or why he’d been chosen for this task, Milarch began his mission of cloning the world’s great trees. Many scientists and tree experts told him it couldn’t be done, but, twenty years later, his team has successfully cloned many of the world’s oldest trees—among them giant redwoods and sequoias.
