Japanese DrumsA beautiful clip made by Swiss videographer Kedar Misani:
In July 2004 I visited Barcelona to attend a huge environmental exhibition and discussion FORUM together with the Parliament of the World's Religions. Among many cultural events the "Shumei Taiko Ensemble" gave an outstandig live performance for schoolchildren in their courtyard. I got the permission to film this event. Open the clip and revive the powerful moments of this Japanese drumming group that practices music and meditation as part of their daily spiritual training.

The Man Who Lives With BearsCharlie Vandergaw is a man who seems to prefer bears to humans.
Every summer for more than 20 years he has swapped his home for a wood cabin in the wilderness of Alaska so he can be close to black and grizzly bears.
Featuring some of the most intimate footage of wild bears ever seen, this remarkable film follows this mans secret in the Alaskan wilderness, as he attempts to prove that man and wild bear can live alongside each other in harmony.
Faszinating! I enjoyed every minute of it!
Duration: 44 minutes
