Our Official Teaser Trailer

into the wind


We are four families, two of whom have near a decade and a half of combined experience of living and traveling full-time on the road, visiting and living in over 60 countries on six continents. Learning from and contributing to the communities, cultures, people and places we have been privileged to be a part of, is a key part of our journey. For all of us, learning and cultivating human connection is a great part of the inspiration that has brought us together to tell the stories of seven families who set out on this journey, Into the Wind. 

Our team includes Ian Oakley a professional filmmaker, director and producer, who through his work and company Whitestone Media, has helped share many important stories of the human condition throughout the world. It also includes Lindsey (Elle) Robbins, a former National Geographic Producer and Director, who has been involved in some of the most adventurous projects and stories told on the planet. Her earlier life, lived adventurously in Africa and Asia, along with her wealth of experience in film production, brings richness and depth to the important stories we have to share. The Pearce and The Kaponay Families, having traveled the world for the last eight and six years respectively, bring their breadth of experiences and authentic stories of living semi-nomadic, location independent, culturally immersive, worldschooling lifestyles to our team. 

Our on the ground experience in running successful location independent businesses, growing family on the road, investing in what it is we sincerely love and embracing and seeing through our visions of this learning journey we take in life, have seen our families and our children thrive. Emily Pearce (14, eldest daughter of the Pearces), a budding musician and animator is contributing her work to our film, as is Lalika Kaponay (16) with his logistics brilliance. Réka Kaponay (16) who at 14 years of age became one of the world’s youngest published authors, Production Coordinator of Visuals, Social media Coordinator and Marketing assistant. Elle’s daughter Eden Robbins (11) and Marie Pearce (12) contribute a depth of wisdom that goes well beyond their years. This is an immersive family experience of learning, where everyone plays a vital contributory role to bringing this labour of love project to life, but more than this, it is the documenting of an emerging movement that will cause you to question everything… 

Our story is about the journey we take, about learning together to appreciate what is invaluable in this life and the connections that transform us and lift us all...

We're part of an emerging movement. A group of families for whom life means living, learning, growing, and traveling the world together, as a way of enhancing meaningful connection with each other, the people of our earth and all living things on our planet. Having traveled the world as families, we want to share with you our stories. Stories of connection, learning and transformation that we trust will inspire you to take your own journey...Into The Wind.

This Film Will Cause You to Question Everything

"There are thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet screaming desperation. Where they work long hard hours, at jobs they hate, to enable them to buy things they don’t need, to impress people they don’t like... It's up to us as individuals to take control of the types of lives we want to lead."

"Our Education System has mined our minds in the same way they have strip-mined the earth for a particular commodity, and for the future it won’t service. We have to rethink the fundamental principals on which we educate our children...

I believe our only hope for the future is to adopt a new conception of Human Ecology, one in which we start to reconstitute our conception of the richness of human capacity."
