A small film crew from the Canadian province of Quebec is currently traveling throughout Panama to shoot an extended documentary/reality show about Panama. The group will spend more than a month in Panama, shooting footage and gaining insight in to life in Panama.
The crew will be traveling to every province in Panama, including the jungles of Darien. Yours truly was the on-air host for the two episodes about the Azuero peninsula. Scenes include Isla Iguana, hand-line fishing, a murga, pottery making and a lesson in pollera making.
The show is shot in a documentary style with a hint of reality since the subject of the show participates in all of the activities. Once complete, the show will consist of 13 one-hour episodes.
As I showed the crew around the jewels of the Azuero peninsula, it was great to experience their excitement of all Panama has to offer. Of course I’m biased since I live in Azuero, but the team agreed that this is their favourite part of the country so far.
The program will air in September on a French-language network in Quebec.
