Why We Hike

This is a great video that I edited and helped film in May and June of 2012.

Why We Hike from Actuality Media on Vimeo.

Hiking with Quetzaltrekkers was a great life experience, and one I will not soon forget. Nor will I ever forget the kids living at El Hogar that directly benefit from the work the volunteers at Quetzaltrekkers do. It was one of the most emotionally painful times of my life to listen to the sad stories of their lives – the horrors they have been put through – over and over again as I cut this film together. I cannot begin to imagine what their lives have really felt like, but I wish them the best and I’m glad they were willing to let us use their stories to help EDELAC as a whole.

Without a doubt, I’m going back to visit these guys next year and to play another game of football.

  1. Thank you for your whole hard work on this blog. Ellie really likes carrying out investigation and it’s obvious why. Most people learn all relating to the lively means you give precious thoughts through this web site and in addition encourage response from visitors on that area of interest plus our favorite girl is starting to learn a lot of things. Enjoy the remaining portion of the new year. You are performing a splendid job.

  2. Very cool coverage and perspective Robin, I am interested in the type of work that you are doing. I will definitely be following!

    • Thanks!
      Heading back to Guatemala this March and should have news about multiple short docs by then, probably some new photography work, too.
