Dag Moeder, Dag Oma

Rust zacht, lieve oma,
Rust zacht, lieve moeder,
Rust zacht, zonder pijn,
Een traan en een glimlach, rust nu zacht,
Het was fijn u als moeder en oma te hebben,
Ontelbaar schijnen ons de dagen die nog komen gaan,
Maar nu pas tellen wij die dagen omdat iets dierbaars is vergaan,
Wij komen snel bij u.

Imagine yourself listening to Requiem from Mozart… There is the magnificence of the music, so often used to solemnly mark terrible tragedy and bring solace. There is the mystery of its composition. There is a helluva story. What this music gives us is not only an appreciation for the genius of Mozart but the transcendent aspects of the Requiem as a work of art that is about death, survival and the possibility of an afterlife.

Marathon of the Sands

The best-known ultra marathon in the world, 150 miles in six grueling races over seven days across the burning sands of the Sahara Desert in Morocco, including “Dune Day” through the Sahara’s highest sand dunes. More than 700 competitors from around the world in the mens and womens divisions.

MARATHON OF THE SANDS is the world’s most daunting footrace – seven days and 148 miles of running in the merciless, 120 degree heat of the Sahara Desert, one of the most extreme environments on Earth. To some of those who dare, it’s a transcendent foray into the timeless sands of Morocco. And to the rest, it’s an awful test of the limits of human endurance. MARATHON OF THE SANDS captures the agony and ecstasy of this legendary race, as 600 of the world’s fittest athletes compete against one another – and the Sahara.

In the Shadow of the Condor

Filmmaker Michael Brown and Chilean conservationist Pablo Sandor lead a magnificent, wild adventure through a “vertical forest” into an unknown spectacular Yosemite-like granite canyon — an expedition recognized by the United Nations for its role in protecting the pristine Corcovado National Park in Southern Chile.

In the Shadow of the Condor documents an expedition in January of 2002 into the spectacular pristine Corcovado wilderness in Southern Chile. The expedition traveled up a “heart of darkness” river, bushwhacked through a vertical jungle, and then emerged out into a magnificent landscape of glaciated granite walls. Filmmaker Michael Brown and Chilean conservationist Pablo Sandor climbed upward to find a jewel of a lake tucked between the highest peaks.

Sandor and his Ayacara Foundation are working to protect the Corcovado region from development and the United Nations has just selected Ayacara to receive a prestigious conservation award. Ayacara leaders give important credit for the award to Brown’s film, which dramatized for U.N. and the Chilean Government’s decision makers first-hand why the region should be included in a national park. “In the Shadow of the Condor” was produced by Outside Television, in association with Outdoor Life Network

Corcovado National Park is the newest of the national parks of Chile. It is bordered by the gulf of the same name to the west. The park includes the volcanoes Corcovado and Yanteles. The park hosts significant biodiversity, with about 18 mammal species, 64 bird species and 133 flora species. Corcovado National Park was created as the result of land donations from 2 American conservationists, along with a substantial land donation by the Chilean military.

Into the Tsangpo Gorge

The epic first whitewater descent of the “Everest” of rivers – the Tsangpo Gorge in Tibet – the last great adventure prize left on Earth. Tsangpo Gorge is located in Tibet and is over 150 miles long. The Gorge sits 15,000 feet below the Gyala Perli mountain towering 23,901 feet high to the north and the Namcha Barwa at 25,446 feet high to the south. The mountains are only 13 miles apart with the Yarlung Tsangpo River- 15,000 feet below .There had long been legends of large magnitude waterfalls leading into deep and dark Gorges. The Hidden falls Gorge was found in 1998 after years of searching.

A film of the epic first descent into the deepest river gorge in the world, the Yarling Tsangpo River gorge, in early 2002. Surrounded by 24,000-ft snow-capped peaks on either side, seven young kayakers, with the support of a ground crew, did it, to theamazement of all! Led by Scott Lindgren, the others running the river, which drops 9,000 feet in 150 miles, were Johnnie & Willie Kern, Willie Kern, Dustin Knapp, Steve Fischer, Mike Abbott, and Allan Ellard. This is the story of their remarkable journey. The Tsangpo Gorge is the deepest Gorge in the world and the most remote.

Churning the Sea of Time

This is a stunning journey up the Mekong River by boat through Vietnam and Cambodia to Angkor – the ancient Khmer ruins deep in the Cambodian jungle. Churning the Sea of Time: A Journey Up the Mekong to Angkor…..

One of the most mythic and potent journeys of our time, up the Mekong River through the exquisite, complicated terrain of Vietnam and Cambodia to the great ruins at Angkor – the magnificent Khmer temples built from the 9th-13th centuries AD that are being painstakingly restored deep in the Cambodian jungle. Director Les Guthman travels by boat up a river whose raw beauty and power were celebrated by Marguerite Duras in the 1920s. But in our time it became known as “the river of evil memory” as it coursed through Southeast Asia in the second half of the 20th century.

Today, the river in Vietnam is filled with the vibrant life of a young nation free of a century of war. In Cambodia the past weighs far heavier. We travel up the Mekong passed Phnom Penh, once called “the beguiling beauty of SE Asia,” toward the Laotian border in search of the almost-extinct fresh water dolphins of the Mekong; then return back to the capital and head northwest up one of the world’s unique natural wonders, the Tonle Sap River, and across the great Tonle Sap Lake, one of the planet’s most abundant fisheries.

In Angkor, World Monuments Fund experts describe their 15-year restoration of one of the jewels of a city called “the eighth wonder of the world,” the 12th century palace complex of Preah Khan. And as they take us on an insider’s tour of Preah Khan, along with the other major sites of Angkor Wat, Bayon and Banteay Srei, we learn that the story of their work in Angkor is not only a story of the rebirth of Angkor after the horrors of the Khmer Rouge Era, but it is also a story of the rebirth of Cambodia.

A stunningly filmed high definition odyssey up a river far distanced in time from the corridor into the heart of darkness portrayed in Francis Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now.”
