Want to join our trip?
Socotra. Year 2013. A lost island, somewhere in the Arabian Sea near the coast of Yemen. Kilogram Box starts an amazing journey to document a story never told before. Every step you take in this ancient and extraordinary land is a new discovery: unique landscapes, myths...
Socotra, the hidden land, a production by Kilogram Box, is a reflection of the life and customs of this isolated society, told by some of the most remarkable characters on the island, who tell us in their own words about their spirit, their future and their daily struggle to preserve their traditions in the face of globalization.
Why this campaign?
The most important thing for us is to explain this story and share it with the world. The project is up and running and has been for many months, but we need your help to keep it going, and your cooperation may be decisive in giving a voice to the people of Socotra, their challenges and the problems which threaten their survival. Having recorded most of the documentary, we need to return to Socotra to follow up on the stories of some of the characters and to offer as complete a view as possible.
We want to tell this story the only way we know: in pictures. In 2011 we founded Kilogram Box, a film production company and studio for the creative arts, with the goal of providing innovative ideas and to maintain our independence. We love making movies and getting involved in audiovisual projects. We have worked on a number of internationally relevant productions such as The good heart, which won five Edda in 2011 and the award for best cinematography at the Göteborg Film Festival (2010), among others, or I want to be a soldier, best film at the Gaudi Awards 2012 and winner of the Marcus Aurelius Award at the Rome Film Festival 2010.
