Two travelers traverse deserts, mountains, and valleys in search of their future.

A LONG, LONG TIME AGO, there were two people who looked very much like yourselves… – so begins “A story for tomorrow,” a portrait of five weeks in Chile and Patagonia.

As a white dude who meandered around South America’s nether regions I am held rapt by the narrator who sounds a lot like the accordion playing owl who narrates Rango.

It’s almost always better to get some latino scholar with gravel in his throat to recite your script than record it yourself in the back of your Mazda Miata.

This is all to say, I think this video is awesome and you should watch it.

    What a pity we need foreigners to learn that the land we were born is amazing,
    That’s the way my country looks like, beautiful and magnificent. ¡Viva Chile!

    This is beautiful! Would love if someone could post info on the music in the vid?, (second song is a cover of  “Skeletons“ by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but whose cover is it?)

    Greetings, Amazaing people! 
    I was moved to tears watching this video, which is a pretty rare thing for a big russian yogi bear :) lolI was looking for a way to get in touch with you, but can’t find your email or contact info at your website. The reason – I’m creating a project that helps people with psychological or physical trauma to  heal while travelling. I think this video will be inspirational for them. So I’d like to ask for your permission to link it to the website.Much gratitude,

  • Krys C Wanders

    <3 Loved it.

  • Victoria Shpigun Rossi

    Amazing Chile! <3

  • Alon Diąmant

    Great! Wonderful demonstration of the wonders of Chile. (Also, of the wonders of the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna National Reserve on the Bolivian side, if I’m not mistaken.)

    Torres del Paine looks great, as does the volcano of Villarica, the Valle de la Luna, Valaparaiso, the Hanging Glacier (Ventisquero Colgante) and many other cool places.

    Great camera work – good shooting equipment, for sure – and good artistic vision creates an amazing video. And all of this in a short month and a half trip. Can you imagine the amount of wonders that all of South America contains?

    • Adrianna Navar Berré

      you can’t imagine, you oughtta see ‘em.

    • Alon Diąmant

      Make sure you skip Ecuador though, the natives are hostile. :)

    • Adrianna Navar Berré

      The problem wasnt all of us, but you ;)

    • Alon Diąmant

      I’m pretty sure it was you :P
