Brendon Grimshaw is an 82 year old man who was editor to some of the most important newspapers in Africa. In 1962 he bought Moyenne Island in the Seychelles and moved there permanently with a friend in 1972.
In all the years that he had lived on the island, Grimshaw and his friend, Rene Lafortune, planted sixteen-thousand trees, built 4,8 kilometres of nature paths, and brought and bred 110 giant land tortoises, creating an island of incredible beauty now worth 34 million Euros. Now he fears his island will one day be destroyed by greed. For $3, which is less than a cup of coffee you can watch a documentary about this amazing man, his island life, and their intertwined future at Grain Of Sand The Film.
