Walter and Lewis Ordway at the Continental Divide in Colorado in 2015
Movie scripts are exercises of pure visualization. I’m fortunate to have stumbled onto this discipline akin to my photography journey. Like most good things in life, it just organically accrued, ten-years counting and close to my heart. It’s an endeavor I am proud to have embarked on — a story beyond my expectations.
From a young age, Walter Ordway fought his emerging American upbringing. As a young man, he achieved freedom by bicycling around the world for 23-years. He realized LIFE could make better decisions and aimed to stay out of the way! Hello Dalai is his true rambling story that challenges our expectations. When this western rebel confronts the Dalai Lama, a shocking, life-altering transformation occurs. The script displays irony, twists, humor, and confirmation when LIFE, knocks on heaven’s door.
