THE VIEW SOUTH
Is a cinematic experience, with breathtaking aerials and timelapses visuals. British Travel Filmmaker Richard Szkiler offers viewers an enticing and cinematographic journey across Patagonia. In somewhat of a unique form, the piece is unconventional, in the sense in allows it’s audience to immerse themselves into Patagonia yet the film seamlessly transitions to go behind the scenes to view the film from the filmmakers perspective, whilst remaining a enchanting, uninterrupted cinematic piece.
The film takes you through Andean Peaks, across glaciers and introduces a close insights to the life of pumas and other Patagonian wildlife.
The film does not intend to demand anything from its audience and each individual will have their own interpretation. It does however act as a showcase piece of this beautiful and almost untouched natural paradise.
