Origin of the Sky
The Origin of the Sky Project by Marc Montocchio, an experienced nature photographer and videographer, captures the unique special place in the world known as Sian Ka’an.
In Mayan, the ancient inhabitants of this beautiful place, the name means “birth place” or “origin of the sky”.
Now a biosphere reserve that includes many habitats and animal species, these precious jewels of the natural world face the pressures of the modern world. The reserve is located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The reserve was established in 1986. The film should be finished in the fall of 2014, but this glimpse at the “making of it” will whet your appetite for more.
