  • Flavors of Rwanda

    Today finally at peace and willing to turn the page on the horrors of the past, Rwanda, also known as “the Country of the Milles Collines", offers a condensed version of the African continent. There is the usual wildlife with zebras, elephants, giraffes, etc… roaming around the savannah but also a mountainous rainforest sheltering gorillas and chimpanzees in the middle of a luxuriant and breathtaking flora.

    Beyond its exceptional nature, Rwanda has also a rich cultural heritage as shown in folk dancing, colorful craftsmanship or vibrant local markets.

  • Flavors of Punjab

    In Persian, Punjab means “the land of the five rivers”.

    This state, located on the northwest of India, is the bread basket of the country and one of the richest. Although less known, and therefore less visited, than neighbouring Rajasthan, Punjab has a wealthy cultural heritage resulting from the successive invasions of Persians, Greeks and British.

    This land of the Maharajas is also the birthplace of the Sikh religion and its holy shrine, the Golden Temple. This magnificent building, entirely covered with gold, is located in the heart of the city of Amritsar.

  • Flavors of Iran

    Modern history has kept Iran and its rich and unique heritage to itself, but the country is finally opening up to the world.

    Tehran with its 18 million inhabitants is a modern city with its welcoming inhabitants happen to be close to many popular winter sports resorts. Going North to the Caspian region is breadbasket of the country where tea and rice fields alternate. Not to be missed are the cities of Isfahan with its finely crafted mosques or Yazd, known as "Desert Town", considered one of the oldest cities in the world. Even more famous is the archaeological site of Persepolis, unrivalled by the importance and quality of its ruins.

  • Flavors of Panama

    Panama, a country slightly larger than Switzerland, deserves to be known for more than just its canal, as impressive as that may be.

    In a world where natural wilderness is increasingly rare, and indigenous people are gradually disappearing, this wonderfully preserved country is well worth a visit. Its luxuriant nature, the great cultural diversity of its tribal people, and its richly historical locations are all part of a journey of discovery blessed by the trade winds from the Pacific and the Caribbean. Not to mention the special atmosphere around its volcano.

  • Flavors of Savoy

    Savoy, one of the most beautiful region of France, could be summarized as follows : impressive mountains, outstanding architecture, thrilling winter activities, talented artisans and unique gastronomy.

    In the heart of the French Alps, thanks to the ski craze, some villages have become synonymous with ultra high end luxury. Today names such as Courchevel or Val d’Isère are more famous than Savoy. Yet the valleys of this exceptional region have much more to offer than glitz. This film takes you in a snowy discovery of multifaceted Savoy, trapped between authenticity and glamour.

  • Flavors of Ethiopia

    Ethiopia has been the theater of many conflicts and calamities which have left a lasting stigma and explain why it has been barely visited. Yet this great country has a wealth of historical and natural treasures to offer the curious minded.

    FLAVORS OF ETHIOPIA is your ticket to the high plateaus of the north of the country with their astonishingly rich cultural, ethnic and spiritual treasures.

    Ethiopia, one of the world’s oldest states, previously known as Abyssinia, has been isolated for a long time but now deserves our utmost attention.

  • Flavors of South Korea

    The country was one of the poorest in the world at the end of the tragic war of 1953, yet South Korea has enjoyed an incredible expansion since then and now ranks as one of the major economic powers. Urban design and architecture are striking illustrations of its dynamism.

    Yet behind modern Seoul lies another Korea, a country which was once known as “The Land of the Morning Calm” where Buddhist temples awake to the light of lanterns and where tea plantations and rice fields ooze serenity.

    Welcome to a lesser known Korea, one full of natural wonders and heir to a millennium old civilization.

  • Flavors of Eastern Caribbean

    Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are some of the lesser known islands lying on a stretch starting from the south of the Caribbean Arc to the South American sub-continent. These little pearls are strung together on a chain known as "the Windward Islands".

    The population is of Amerindian origin but became mixed with European colonisation and the influx of African slaves. Today, they have mastered an easy going lifestyle.

    Thanks to their authenticity and invigorating beauty, these fragments of the former British Empire are very remote from the standard image we often have of the Caribbean.
