Dmitry Gomberg: Akrak Vazha (The Shepherd’s Way)
This is a story about Tusheti - mountain region in the Republic of Georgia. Tusheti lies near the Chechen border and it is culturally closer to Chechens than to Georgians. The story is about shepherds who travel every summer to their ancestors’ land Tusheti and than return to spend the winter at the bottom of the mountain. Twice a yaer they travel with their sheep through the pass in the Caucasus which is 3,000 meters high.
I was staying and documenting life of the Shepherds in the Caucasus mountains for 5 years.
These people have been cheese makers since before Christ.
Their life is simple and harsh, but beautiful.
Apparently this is "The clearest photo of Mercury ever taken."
why isnt everyone getting so excited about this, it is literally another planet look at how beautiful it is stop what your doing and look at how alien like this planet is what is living there oh my god mercury
"Ironically the gap between me and the Doctor is smaller than the gap between me and Malcolm. Malcolm took a lot more out of me in some ways. It was a darker, more anxiety-ridden performance which was always quite stressful. This is a joyful experience."

I’ve played a lot of dark characters and I think that, as an actor, you have to think of them more as interesting people rather than villains.
Tom Burke may play tortured souls on screen, but his lifestyle is contrastingly uncomplicated. He lives in Kennington, south London, kind of near the Ship Pub and the Buddhist centre. Which in many ways is where I’m at in my life. It’s this kind of wry thoughtfulness that frames conversation with Burke; there’s a lack of pretence that’s rare among his peers. When asked what he does in his spare time, for instance, the answer is arrestingly unstarry: I read. I walk. I drink a lot of tea.
Burke’s star is definitely rising, but he remains refreshingly unassuming. Recalling his Only God Forgives co-star Gosling, Burke says, he was very inspiring. He has an appetite for originality and the unusual. We had a conversation on a night shoot about the way we’d like to die, in real life. I said lying in a field. He found this hilarious. I didn’t understand why, but I liked that about him.
