I Will Survive
Following a massive devastating veld fire in the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, I decided to go for a hike in the stunning Biosphere, just outside of Kleinmond.
Fynbos (South Africa’s indigenous plant species) has a remarkable way of surviving these veld fires, as was shown to me on this particular hike. Only weeks after, small buds were already opening, tiny plants re-emerging from the ashes.
I also thought of the famous “I Will Survive” song, and decided to record a cover version for this video’s soundtrack, changing it into a more vulnerable, nuanced track.
