Valery Danko Discovers Energy from Space
Over the last few days if you’ve been following our facebook groups you have probably noticed we have been filming on Easter Island.
The idea here is to help people understand the concept of Spaceship Earth. The Earth is like a spaceship and so like Easter Island’s history, if people consume all of its resources unsustainably, then their civilizations are open to decadence, decline and finally a dark age. This follows the case of most major civilizations even during the Bronze Ages, right up until Roman times.
This has also given us the idea of doing a film about Easter Island itself. We will use the footage to examine the history of Easter Island in detail. Some of this work will feature in Valery Danko Discovers Energy from Space, our current major project.
We have to thank several people for making this possible: firstly I would like to thank Valery Danko for taking time out of working as CEO for her own company Pigeon Tours Ltd (London) – if you get a chance to book a tour you will enjoy every second of it. Valery is an expert in history and culture and likes unusual stories that often get overlooked. I would also like to thank her for being a friend during my own recent bereavement. Secondly I want to thank Monica Lombardi for helping us at short notice. I know we had lots of difficulties arranging flights and getting accomodation at this time of year (late November 2019). Thirdly I’d like to thank Leo Stavhovsky, our friend, who flew in from Dallas to help us as driver and behind the scenes photographer. Also I would like to thank the Rapa Nui National park and particularly Gabriela Hucke Rafter who was also our very knowledgeable Film Inspector.
