The soundless step of a scorpion, the lacrimal on a monkeys eye ball, soft swaying leaves of giant trees and the twist of an old wood waiting in the moist afternoon air…
With Christopher Moon’s eye for framing, stunning details and the gentle voice of the narrator Terry Burns, stunning details and captivating use of slow motion James W. Griffiths bewitches us and takes us on a ride to a land far far away. Far beyond the forests and jungles shown in his film. It’s a dark but compelling story, not the typical “have fun and enjoy the sun” video you might expect. It goes much deeper into the forests behind the vines than you might dare to walk on your own.
“The Isle of Lankawi” is about the legends and folktales set in historical Langkawi and shows us the overabundance of beauty, the flourishing vegetation and diversity of the country and the stories bound the every island and mountain raising from the blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Again a great voice over and the natural sounds of the tropical environment combined with a very gentle eye on people and land are enchanting.
“We were Wanderers on a prehistoric Earth” and “The Isle of Lankawi” are definitely two good reasons to check for flights to far-away Malaysia and feel the tropical air on your skin and listen to the sounds of the birds.Tweet
