AN INTERVIEW WITH ANTHONY GORDON, DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHER & EDITOR OF "ALIQUAM II"


Best Inspirational Film: April 2022 Edition





INTERVIEW



Anthony Gordon, thank you very much for having us. Let’s dive into your film. You have worked in the Himalaya Mountains and on the world’s highest peaks. What sparked your interest in the oceans?


To be honest after 23 years of making documentaries in extreme environments all over the planet I had seen quite a bit through the lens of a camera. Long story short, I was diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) which for me was quite a relief as I didn’t quite understand the symptoms.

So, it was a psychologist that suggested that I search for something different to break the cycle that was causing the traumatic symptoms.
