If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth more than two thousand miles. We’re super stoked to share this 4-minute movie, a sneak preview of our adventures so far exploring conservation across borders along the Silk Road – by bike. This trailer features Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan, our first three countries out of ten total on this year-long journey to India, including Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Nepal, and India. Eventually this will turn into a full-length documentary about how borders make and break the world, a film marrying adventure with environmental advocacy to encourage people to think beyond borders.
If you’re enjoying this wild ride vicariously, please consider donating to our Scurvy Avoidance Fund. We are so grateful for – and very dependent on – your generous contributions. Thanks to all you wonderful souls who have donated thus far. Your support goes toward food and visas, both crucial for crossing borders on a bike, and also toward the occasional load of laundry, crucial for looking somewhat respectable while interviewing important people.
