A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
George Steinmetz had a gratifying 30-year long career as an award-winning exploration photographer. He has been a frequent contributor to the National Geographic magazine, with a focus on science, travel, and landscape portraiture. This short film is a precursor for his book with the same title. Both chronicle ten years of aerial photography in Africa, taken while suspended from a paraglider. I love the way Steinmetz describes the potency of aerial photography: “From above, you can see the patterns of life. There are things you would be totally oblivious to on the ground, and once you get up in the air, they’re instantly clear.”
