Back in 2019, I went to Antarctica with 100 women scientists with Homeward Bound, a leadership program that wants to achieve a more sustainable and just world, and that understands that without gender equality we will not succeed.
I filmed everything. Mostly ice, penguins, sea, women, storms, laughter, hope, and stories.
And then this experience became a documentary thanks to a great team with Isaac Lupiáñez and Clara Sopeña.
#Tornaracomençar (Begin again) is about women, climate, Antarctica and maternity. It’s about hope for a different and better future, where we are all connected with our planet and with the needs of other people.
Here you can see the teaser of Begin Again (subtitles in English).
