The World is Burning, but Nova Scotia sure is beautiful

It’s a respite to be up here, learning about oyster farming and Acadia, Syrian Chocolatiers and biodynamic winemakers.  We are two weeks into filming this Maritime Province and as I jump into the cold waters every morning or evening, I feel very lucky.

It’s a strange time to be traveling in Nova Scotia: to be posting idyllic pictures of wilderness, delicious seafood, and communities warmly accepting refugees. In fact, right now feels like a strange time to be doing anything besides reflecting, helping, tweeting, fund-raising, and protesting about our doomed climate and political system.  But like us, you probably also have a job that keeps you somewhat busy. And our’s is damn good one: to make films about people and place.

Our films won’t be available for a while, but here are some pictures of our adventures so far:
