ESMFF Opening Night - A Crack In The Mountain
A Crack In The Mountain
Director Alastair Evans
"Just imagine if the Grand Canyon was only discovered this week. It didnt belong to anyone and there was a government that controlled it but they were under the influence of a lot of forces.
And then people realized this was going to become a major global tourist attraction. How would that go? It wouldnt go well...
Deep in the jungle of Central Vietnam, lies a magnificent underground kingdom.
Hang Son Doong which translates as mountain river cave, is the largest cave passage in the world and a place of spectacular beauty.
In 2014, Son Doongs future was thrown into doubt when plans were announced to build a cable car into the cave.
With many arguing that this would destroy its delicate eco-system and the local community divided over the benefits this development would bring, the film follows those caught up in the unfolding events.
Beautifully shot and scored, A Crack In The Mountain is a powerful exposé about how both good and bad intentions can ultimately lead to one of the worlds greatest natural wonders being trampled for money.
