In November 2011, we were sitting in a little cabin in Venezuela, not sure where we were headed or what we wanted out of life. At the time, we were on track to spend ninety days in South America, then onto a year of working and traveling in New Zealand. With the suddenness of a broken shoe lace it dawned on us that we needed to go back and live in BC, get to know my family again, and ground ourselves for a new stage in life.
This little film is a compilation of the footage from the trip home. There wasn’t a particular intention for taking the footage other than to make “something”.That said, it was mostly taken hand held and so I’m sorry if you start feeling sick.
Without question, this is dedicated to my mom Christina Welscher who made it all possible by driving the 1,500km to meet us in San Francisco; where she then let us stuff her car to the brim with everything from the blacksmith tools and saddles to the photo albums and spare clothes we had stored with our friends there.
