A simple beach launch
My good friend Paco Beltrán of DosVelas Pictures has uploaded this touching video of Onawind Blue. Though it doesn’t look like a winter’s day this was filmed back in Janurary on one of those warm, calm Mediterranean days that make getting over complicated diseases a cinch.
Regular viewers might recognise Mónica Oca’s music, which first appeared in the final clip of OB’s Ibizian odyssey, ‘Fear is a Giant Octopus’. You can find more of Mónica’s deeply sensitive and moving music at her blog. She can be contacted through the comment box.
DosVelas Pictures are currently working on the film ‘In a Strange Land’, the story of Mu Hpare, a Kayan refuge who, after years of wearing brass coils around her neck, becomes part of a resettlement project in the USA. You can watch the trailer here.
I feel honoured to have a professional documentary maker focus their lens on my little boat with Mónica’s evocative music alongside.
