What is the meaning of the title ‘Lands of Wind’?

“Peru and Bolivia boast many mountains and tablelands. And the wind always blows. Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is probably one of the windiest places I have ever visited. But the title also has a deeper meaning. Wind makes you feel free, as if you are part of something bigger. The wind in your face makes you feel one with the world.”

What was your goal in making this film?

“I spent two months travelling through Peru and Bolivia. At first I just wanted to take pictures, but once I arrived there I discovered that the sounds and silence are part of the experience and much better captured on video. I ended up making this video so that I could share my experiences with my friends and family back home.”

What was the most beautiful part of Peru and Bolivia?

“I filmed in so many different places, but I think what I liked most were the people I met wherever I went. But if I have to pick one place, I would say that Machu Picchu in Peru is incredibly beautiful.”
