    One astronaut's journey through space and life ends on a hostile exosolar planet. Grounded is a metaphorical account of the experience, inviting unique interpretation and reflection by the viewer. Themes of aging, inheritance, paternal approval, cyclic trajectories, and behaviors passed on through generations are explored against an ethereal backdrop.

At the beginning of time, Rangi, the male sky, and Papa, the female Earth, were entwined in a static embrace. Rangi wanted with this embrace to prevent the creation of the world. Their divine children, like Tangaroa the god of the sea, could not escape. The trapped gods tried in vain several times to separate from their parents. Tane, the god of the forest, pushed away his father with his head and his mother with his feet, and finally succeeded.He then set the Sun and the Moon, and decorated the heavens with stars. Tane was also the one who created the first woman, called Hine, whom he married. Their children were the first Polynesian people. Tane created the world by giving the impulse of movement in a static scheme, and inhabited this world with a beautiful woman who was the living link between the gods and the people. Movement is life.

              Most people know Kew Gardens as home of the world's largest living plant collection but are not aware that it is also the location of an internationally important botanical research and educational institution. Going beyond the gardens as we know them, Lonelyleap produced two films for 2012's Tropical Extravaganza Festival which showcase the behind the scenes work of Kew's scientists whilst also exploring two of the festival's themes, Earth and Air. The second film in the series looks at the work of the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership in Surrey, home to 10% of the world's plant diversity, and how the Seed Conservation Department is helping to save wild plants and habitats for our future.

                      The Video My family was just about to start our first full season in our local community garden when I decided it would be fun to document our growing attempts. Our motivation was simple… grow organic, healthy food... spend time together, teach my daughter where food really comes from, cut our grocery bill. Plus, as I found out, digging in the dirt is very therapeutic. And when it comes to picky kids…If they grow it, they will eat it! We hope you enjoy. Please leave any thoughts The Music Seis Cuerdas “Flor Gitana” from the album “Volumen IV” You know you live in Los Angeles when you find musicians of such AMAZING caliber playing on the street. Brothers Martin & Ezquiel Etcheverry make up Seis Cuerdas and the only thing more amazing than listening to their music is watching them play it live! Please check out their web site and support them! http://www.seiscuerdas.net/
