Antoine Bruy Scrublands on Vimeo

In 2006, while he was backpacking in Australia, the French photographer Antoine Bruy signed up with an international exchange program for volunteers who want to work on organic farms. The experience prompted a fascination with self-sufficient life styles, and, in particular, with people who have adopted them after having spent years in cities. From 2010 to 2013, Bruy travelled across a number of European mountain ranges, including the Carpathians and the Pyrenees, to document people who are trying to gain, in his words, “greater energy, food, economic, or social autonomy.” Next year, Bruy plans to continue his project, which he calls “Scrublands,” in the United States.

WISDOMKEEPERS, PAQO ANDINO on Vimeo

Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino is a unique cinematic journey into the ancient, heart-based intelligence and celestially guided lifeways of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition. Through the film's intimate and expansive content, viewers receive an unmediated, experiential understanding of the animistic relationships, high-altitude environments and prayer-filled ceremonies of one of the planet's few uninterrupted wisdom lineages. 

This non-narrated film follows the day-to-day activities of the Andean Paqos (spiritual masters) to help audience members rediscover essential components of personal and collective well-being at a time when unprecedented numbers of people find themselves out of balance with the natural world and seeking a deeper means of connectivity and renewal.

How would free and equal privileges for all be translated into everyday reality? How would the common property be shared according to need? Owen had developed a proposal in England called Rules and Regulations of a Community, which he proposed to adapt to the specific set of circumstances in New Harmony...."
