The 'Voices of Lapland' book has a lot to do with our documentary 'Voices of Lapland', which was shot during the same trip this book relates to. Both projects were kind of an excuse to deep into Lapland and get to know its people.
This book's idea comes from a 2500km road trip across Lapland in January 2019. During that trip we were shooting a documentary about Lapland people's way of life, trying to catch the essence of the place and its people. This way we wanted to transmit this to our people, to let them know why we are so in love with this magical place.
The book is not only a 'behind the scenes' during the documentary shooting, but also the story of two people's adventure, the people they met during it and their personal stories, a little bit of contextualization about the place and a lot of the magic that Lapland offers to everybody who go there with their eyes opened.
The most awesome landscapes we enjoyed, the snow storm that caught us in a dangerous place in the middle of nowhere, the touching story of one of our hosts, the aurora borealis gifts, the night we spent driving against the clock because of a closed road, a very special northern legend... The laughs, the tears, the hugs, the light.
All the anecdotes and little adventures in the adventure we lived, you will live with us through this book.
*The title and the cover of the book are provisional.
This book is being written by me, and will be my first published one. It is expected to be launched in English and in Catalan at the same time, in early 2020. Hopefully it will be launched also in Spanish a little later.
It will also be illustrated with Miquel Such's pictures, taken during the real trip (and also some of mine!).
