"Halfway to Heaven"

The story of the roots of the game of Polo, Written, directed, photographed and edited by Terence.

This was exploration in one of the toughest parts of the planet and one of his toughest ever challenges. Countless times negotiating the infamous Karakorum Highway along the Indus River between Afghanistan and Pakistan, discovering the original polo fields where, two thousand years ago, polo battles were fought to settle disputes between towns, 24 hour drives in soft top jeeps through some of the highest mountains in the world, dealing with rock falls while at the mercy of the notorious and armed Pachtun Tribes.

Then the Shandur Pass at 3738 m in the Hindu Kush mountains, regarded as being 'half-way to Heaven' where since the 1920s, a Polo match with no rules has been played by teams from Gilgit in the East and Chitral in the West.

The crew lived in tents with temperatures dropping to -14c at night and filmed with 35mm cameras in a dust bowl at +40c during the day.
