Our next film is in the works!


Gian’s next film will be the story of a second generation Italian (my 16 years old grandchild) discovering his roots in Italy. The story includes four days trekking in the Dolomites. For this project, we’ll be adding a DJI Mavic Zoom 2 drone for stunning shots. Stay tuned for more info!

The Pilgrimage Continues!

Gian2While filming Are You A Pilgrim?, director and protagonist Gian D. Ceccato was profoundly touched by a group of Japanese pilgrims he met on the Christian pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.  They had come to walk in the aftermath the powerful 2011 earthquake and tsunami to pray for the souls of who had died. Continuing the journey he began with Are You A Pilgrim?,  Gian will undertake the spiritually and physically arduous journey of Shikoku Henro-michi—the oldest and most famous Buddhist pilgrimage in Japan, in the footsteps of Kõbõ Daishi. Filming is set to begin later this year, with an expected release in 2017. Stay tuned!
