The Patagonia Sur Documentary Project: Field Notes—Melimoyu: Avatar has nothing on this place

Bridget Besaw: Documentary adventures in Patagonia, Chile.

While Patagonia Sur owns six properties covering nearly 60,000 acres of land in the Aysen region of Patagonia, this phase of my coverage will only allow time to photograph and film the northernmost three properties of Lago Espolon, Valle California and Melimoyu. These are the sites with the most fully realized vision of the Patagonia Sur concept of “ecosystem-scale conservation”.

The Patagonia Sur Documentary Project: Field Notes—Reforesting Patagonia

Bridget Besaw: Documentary adventures in Patagonia, Chile.

One aspect of the Patagonia Sur story that compels me is their carbon-offset program. They have a vision of reforesting much of their land as another means to create a diverse, financially sustainable way to invest in the future Patagonia.

As a documentarian, I tend to prefer photographing something that is actually happening as apposed to illustrating an idea. So I’d been struggling with how to visually tell this story of their work in reforestation and carbon sales. I hadn’t come up with a good option since the actual tree planting doesn’t happen for another few months and so at this moment, these tiny trees are just growing, waiting to become a native, tall, proud carbon sequestering forest someday.
