Burning bright. On the way home here from another @gatherfilm shoot on the White Mountain Apache reservation in Arizona. We had a special last night and home cooked meal from master chef @nephi_craig and his wonderful family. And it’s almost a wrap after more than a year telling the story of Native American food sovereignty across the reservations. Hopefully the light of this film will help Ancestral Food ways and healingbfind its way back into communities across the country. Thanks all for letting us tell your story!

Repost from @taylorfreesolo - Renan just launched a new website to sell prints of his art and photos. I’m going to do the same soon! In the mean time @baloointhewild thought print sales needed a SALE component so, 15% off now through Jan 1! ***Code: baloo15*** Proceeds go to Renan’s dream of stepping away from film work for a month to focus on climbing and painting in the desert this winter. Which I’m in full support of because these are the things that make him most happy ☺️❤️” ~ [@joshuatreenps mixed media on arches watercolor paper]

A full spectrum of emotions on the most memorable day of shooting for the @gatherfilm feature doc. ~ This particular evening started by getting attacked (and almost having my camera batted out of my hands) by an angry Apache youth under the heavy substance influence. This location was the Bashas Parking lot, the local grocery store. Over the last year of shooting on the White Mountain Apache Reservation in Arizona, we’ve avoided this place as it seemed to be where the roughest characters congregate. Our first visit was with @nephi_craig picking up his daughter Kaya from school where he acted like it was a military strike operation to get her in and out quickly. ~ On this day we planned to meet @twila_cassadore_ there for a ‘Mothers Against Meth’ candlelight vigil. The scene was set with one of those desert rain storms where every 20 minutes or so sun comes through clouds and produces rainbows and sunshine while the rain keeps spattering. Nobody showed up initially for the gathering so for the next hour @twila_cassadore_ and I (and @daharbfilm@chzamag@mrsanjayr ) wandered the parking lot talking to hard up characters I never would have faced alone. ~ Twila is a master local food forager and part of the wave of natives changing the food and mental health narrative in Indian country, one of the heroes of the film. Like a lot of our characters she had been through some of the deepest traumas in her own life but has come out the other side with wisdom and abilities to heal. She approached each rough groups in the parking-lot with kindness and was able to recruit a few folks to attend the vigil. ~ Those moments were certainly among the most unexpectedly and meaning verite scenes of the entire film thus far. ~ Finally the storm subsided with dark eerie clouds still hanging low. As darkness fell, Twila led a small group in a healing ceremony holding candles lit in Dixie cups, sharing stories, singing songs. The same youth that scared me was still there, still belligerent but also holding a flame participating. Positive change happening right before our eyes. Fear to wonder to appreciation to hope. The full spectrum indeed. #gatherfilm#gratitude

So cool the get word that our feature doc MOUNTAIN cleaned up at the AACTA (Australian Academy of Cinema and TV Arts) awards. ~ Best Cinematography // Best Sound // Best Original Music Score!! ~ So stoked to see this @jenpeedom masterpiece and team effort get recognized. The cinematography in the film was only a fraction of my own, more of a representation of the community as a whole and our collective passion for this space. Congrats to all!! ~ This film is an exploration of humanities deep and complicated relationship with mountains over time. The pull of the high peaks is something that has also been a force in my own life yet so hard to describe in a conversation. We hope this film will do it justice in an emotional way combining the best from the disciplines of music, writing and visuals! ~ Directed by @jenpeedom, narrated by Willem Dafoe, music selected/composed by Richard Tognetti and the @austchamberorchestra, script adapted by Robert McFarlane’s MOUNTAINS OF THE MIND book and footage shot/curated by myself and @camp4collective@sherpascinema. Quite the collaboration indeed! ~ on NETFLIX, iTunes etc if you haven’t seen it! ~ And for more mountain inspiration follow the characters/shooters of these majestic images: @sanctityofspace@davemossop@eric_crosland@johnnyvalentine@ansonfogel@joeyschusler@cedarwright@davidlama_official@jongriffithphotography@conrad_anker@jimmy_chin@mikeylikesrocks@alexhonnold@freddiewilkinson@hilareenelson@kilianjornet@coryrichards@timkemple@leohoorn and so many more!! #mountain#mountainmovie#filmmakingisateamsport#collaboration

This season @taylorfreesolo and I hope to fill our home with art and photographs from our incredible community and thought an exchange would be nice. Any painters or photographers out there open to a trade?  Let me know in the comments or tag your artist friends who may be interested! See more of my work at RenanOzturk.com *this is for different types of archival prints not originals unfortunately* ————————————————————————- Shipton Contours mixed media on canvas ———————————————————————Created at the 13K foot Shipton Basecamp in the Trango Towers, Karakoram Himalaya.  @cedarwright and I had just climbed the first ascent of the SW Cat Ear Spire, the pointy one in the painting, 2nd from left.  Each big piece of art created in the mountains is connected to a specific adventure and this was one of the most memorable.  It was one of the last remaining unclimbed summits and we balanced on top one at a time because it was so tiny, like standing on a barstool in the sky! -

*Link in profile for full non-cropped art* ~ This is my first semi-mural sized piece of art created on-sight in the Himalaya. I was terrified I’d blow it but went all in with every material to portray this magestic landscape. ~ If you look closely you can see evidence of how I created the canvas - by glueing together a mosaic of smaller pieces of watercolor paper (that fell apart many times in the 13K foot cold air). This 5ft wide mixed media piece has a lot of personal meaning to me not just because @cedarwright made the first ascent of one these mythic towers on this expedition to the Pakistan Himalaya but also because it was in memory of our friend Erica who died tragically in basecamp just before we arrived. ~ Prints of this piece and others now available 🙏🏽 see renanozturk.com for more 🙏🏽

10 miles into a remote canyon in what was formerly #BearsEarsNationalMonument we found ourselves in this moment. “That was the loudest noise I’ve experienced” @kylor mentioned after a five minute period of sitting still with his eyes closed in what seemed like absolute silence. It’s hard for most of us to understand the Native connection to this land but these brief experiences give us a small glimpse. ~ Please visit and support @protectbearsears to find out more! ~ Thanks @kylor for this magical edit and @trevorhallmusic for the sound #ancestralhealing#bearsearsheals

This piece is called ‘Center of the Universe’ and was created during @merufilm expedition with @conrad_anker@jimmy_chin (the mountain is considered the center of the universe by many religions). Looking forward to seeing how some of the metal and wood versions look. If you see something not on the site from this feed that you want sent me a message via the website and I will make it happen.
