We just found out that we've won an award from the prestigious Leggimontagna Mountain Film Festival in Tolmezzo, Italy.

To celebrate, we have just released the Italian subtitled version of the film for download through our website.

They haven't told us which award we have won yet. All we know is that The Boy Who Flies will screen at 21:00 on Wed, Sept 17 at Cinema David in Tolmezzo and that there will be an award ceremony at 21:00 on Fri, Sept 19 at the Conference Hall of the Mountain Community of Carnia.

For more information, check out http://www.leggimontagna.it/

Thank you for your love and support Italy!

Grazie Mille!!!

Photo-documentary:

Godfrey is uploading one image each day from this inspiring journey. To begin yours, view the gallery.

The chief's daughter patiently awaits the presidential election results.

Though voting occurred over a week ago, an impenetrable layer of bureaucracy and corruption has kept the results secret from the Malawian people.

Tension is high. Which man or woman will rise to steer this country towards an independence long overdue?

Last fall, we collected a bus full of paragliding equipment for the School of Dreams project in Malawi, and, until a few weeks ago, had no way of getting it there.

Today, we're so incredibly excited to announce that, through the help of our friends The Cloudbase Foundation, Africycle and Sean O'Connor, the gear magically found its way from Sean's attic to a container in Victoria, BC, setting sail for Malawi shortly.

Thank you Benjamin Voss, Sean O'Connor, John Robertson, Jennifer Kaatz, Chad Loreen, Matt Cone, Stephanie Terrien and the entire Cloudbase Foundation team. Together, you are making The School of Dreams come true!

My best Canadian friends, Ben and Erica have recently arrived in Malawi. They are here to help me explore all of what our land has to offer paragliders and also to help me find the best place to build my paragliding school, The School of Dreams.

We are in the Mount Mulanje area right now and internet access is difficult, but we will share with you friends as much as we can.

The School of Dreams team has landed in Malawi after a beautiful afternoon flight from the Mulanje Massif you can see in the background.

Many of these youth are seeing paragliders for the first time and are so thrilled that they will follow you for an hour or two, all the way to the market, and back again.
