TPZ107: The Making of Janapar & the Art of Storytelling with James Newton

Janapar Cycling Adventure

James Newton is a freelance director and independent filmmaker. He got his start in adventure storytelling in 2003 when he borrowed a camera and traveled to the Amazon to tell the story of Dorothy Stang, an American nun who put her life at great risk to campaign for the rights of peasant farmers. Several years later James released his first feature film that tells the story of a young man in search of a life-changing experience on an around the world bicycle trip and finding it in a woman he fell in love with along the way. James spent 2 years piecing together the story which became the award winning film Janapar: Love on a Bike.
