GLP Films, founded by Rob Holmes ’92, is a finalist in the 2017 Adventure in Motion short film contest.
The short documentary, “The Man at the End of the World,” showcases the beauty and mystery of southern Chile’s Tierra del Fuego archipelago, as seen through the eyes of one of its original pioneers, Don Germán. The vivid, remote landscape is depicted in sweeping shots as Germán describes the joys and challenges of the estancia way of life, and the importance of tourism in preserving the history and natural splendor of the region.
