SYNOPSIS

A documentary about travel experiences

Culture Shock, is a documentary about my personal experience while traveling from Juneau, Alaska to India and Nepal.  I am the project founder and artist, Saffron Hayes, and I started filming the documentary during the summer of 2004.  After finishing high school in Alaska, I­­­ traveled to southern India, Madras, and helped build an Ashram on the beach of a fishing village in Pondicherry.  After filming the beach and city life of southern India, I independently traveled north to Vanarsi city on the Ganges River, where the Indian people spiritually burn the dead in Ghats.  I decided to leave India to spend time with the mountain people of Nepal, where I documented their traditional way of life.  I trekked north, deeper into the Himalayan Mountains, until I reached Srinagar Kashmir and climbed 3,500 meters above sea level to see the alien terrain and razor peaks.  I trekked far away from urban life to experience the vast beauty of the Himalayan mountain landscape and document the cultural connection with the land. 

The documentary follows the life of a young man growing up and traveling to the other side of the world and back. Going on this world adventure and documenting the culture differences, the audience will have a chance to see how different cultures deal with the psychological difficulties accompanied by a post-modern society.  This is an enormous project that has taken me eight years to get this far, but I want to share my life experiences with the world.
