When we decide to do a documentary we dream of delivering a message to someone else. We want to communicate something to someone, something about life to someone that we don’t know. Today we’ve had a wonderful surprise. A package has arrived to our studio. We have opened it, and there was an amazing painting inside. It has been made by Ewa Berbeka, a polish artist. She saw our film, “Pura Vida-The Ridge” and was moved to paint something. The figure in the left is her husband, the great polish climber Maciej Berbeka, who opened a new route in the Annapurna South Face. He died last year while descending Broad Peak. We are still shocked by the power of the painting, it is difficult to write anything now. We are happy to find that we have shared our message with somebody, to find that the message comes back through a beautiful painting. Art is a wonderful way of feeling close to somebody. We feel very close to Ewa, her present has been really important to us. It shows us that we have to keep on telling good stories, stories that are true and beautiful. It all gets sense when things like this happen, when you find out that the message has found its destiny, that we are connected. Thank you very much, Ewa. Thanks a lot not only from Migueltxo and I –Pablo- but from all the team of Pura Vida/The Ridge. Your painting is now hanging in the main wall of our studio, remembering us that we have to keep on climbing, that we have to keep on being on the road. Thank you.
