A couple of months ago I was fortunate enough to shoot a short film for The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, a non-profit that does one very specific wonderful thing and an organization that I hold very close to my heart. Over the course of three weeks I documented their efforts in a small yet dense city called Mococa, which is about four hours northwest of Sao Paulo state in Brasil. In short, five thousand fruit trees were planted within dozens of schoolyards and donated to a passel of people throughout the city. The video is finished and I’ll post a link up to it soon.
Herein, is simply a glimpse into an anomalous city swallowed up in the vastness of a colossal country; indelible are its genuine citizens and extraordinary culture. More words for another time.
Thank you, Mococa.
