Because the Pleasant Revolution is part music tour, part adventure, and part eco mission, it was always the intention to make a film of the Journey so that more people might get to experience it, and hopefully, be affected by it. But when the group took off from home, they still hadn’t found a suitable ally to make the movie. At their first plaza gig, in the small town of Todos Santos, on the southern tip of the Baja Desert, the band bumped into an Argentine film maker named Sergio Morkin. He fell in love with the band and they with him, but he was involved in other films and couldn’t follow them. So he filmed for a day in town, carrying a boom mic in one hand, a camera in the other, and riding his beater mountain bike with neither. And then he filmed the next day, too, and another, and then another, and then said he’d follow them out of town for a day. The band crossed the sea and he stayed behind, working 18 20-hour days in a row to finish his other 2 films. Then Sergio hired a crew and set out in Ninja pursuit for the next 5 months. His film is scheduled to birth in late 2009-early 2010.
