Jungles In Paris
Launched by my brother Oliver and me in 2013, Jungles in Paris is a digital magazine and media brand. We use video and photography to tell stories from around the world, with an emphasis on those things that are timeless, rare, surprising, and beautiful. Though it began as more of a travel site, the mission has evolved to one of communicating respect and knowledge of non-mainstream cultures and the examples they set for slower, wiser, and sustainable ways of living.
A Jungles in Paris Film
Made in partnership with Conservation International and executive producer Lee Pace, “Dulce” is a short documentary set in a remote part of Colombia’s Pacific coast. It tells the story of an 8-year-old girl learning how to swim and join the traditional shellfish harvest, against a backdrop of rising seas and other dangers of global climate change.
The film has screened at Sundance, Toronto, IDFA, and more than 20 other international film festivals. It premiered at Palm Springs Shortfest 2018, where it won the prize for Best Documentary, and also won the Grand Prix at the 2019 Tampere (Finland) International Film Festival. “Dulce” premiered online at New York Times Op-Docs. It is directed by Guille Isa and Angello Faccini, and produced by Darrell Hartman, Oliver Hartman, and Annie Bush.
