Shot on location in NSW, Australia for documentary feature film The Portal - www.entertheportal.com
We introduce one of our protagonists 'Booda' through his childhood portrait, looking back to his days of cutting grass to afford enough to eat. (Reconstructed scene with actor Kweli Peroumal)
The images in this project were taken on location whilst filming the documentary 'The Portal', a film seeking out stories of inspiration and hope. From the USA, to Jordan, to Australia we followed in the footsteps of several awe-inspiring individuals, learning how they overcame adversity and crisis to explore the unique potential that all humans have to change our world from the inside out.
The film embodies a hybrid of documentary storytelling and dramatic reconstructions of pivotal moments from our characters' lives. This project illustrates moments from our filming journey - where we not only captured what we set out to film, but also had the privilege of experiencing so much more.
