Documentary │ Distribution
Deeply influenced by the power of plants, animals and natural elements, the Shipibo are an indigenous community in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, who are fighting to protect their culture and maintain their ancestral knowledge, despite years of invasion and colonisation.
This is a story we are all too familiar with — an indigenous community breaking down and now their knowledge and traditions threatened. But their culture is far from gone, the Shipibo are a very resilient community and through years of colonisation and conflict, they still stand strong, united to protect their knowledge and the environment that has served them for millennia.
This documentary will help the Shipibo people by stimulating a more conscious and direct economic growth to local people, and help support cultural and educational programmes that have been created by the family featured in the documentary. Awareness of their mission will help preserve and protect the people and the land they live on.
Community │Impact Campaign
Since 2017, I have supported the Shipibo community, to help protect and preserve their knowledge and traditions. The Shipibo are an indigenous community from the Amazon Basin of Peru, an Amazonian tribe that has stood the test of time. Whether it’s rubber barons enslaving their people, governments taking their land, the community have suffered at the hands of others throughout the ages. The Shipibo have a unique culture, particularly for their designs, language and shamans. Shipibo shamans hold thousands of years knowledge, past down by their ancestors.
Onanya is the result of discovering this community and receiving the call to support the Shipibo. I have been help raising awareness of their cause and supporting the development of the local projects, generating funds to build homes, teaching English to local children.

Documentary │ 2020
Covid-19 has impacted every individual on the planet, country's brought to their knees, crippling economies. In March 2020, whilst on my adventure to Peru, to film Onanya, I got caught in Peru's military-controlled quarantine.
Unable to film what I intended to, I used the opportunity to follow the journey of British and US tourists staying in the Amazon Jungle, defying all the odds to find their way home and make the limited repatriation flights taking off from Peru's capital Lima.
