Greenwich at the Oscars!

Jenny Pont, Guy Combes' aunt and Simon Combes sister was the Kenyan location producer for Best Foreign Language Film In A Better World. Some the beautiful establishing shots of Kenya were even shot on Soysambu, Guy and Simon's Kenyan home. Many of Guy and Simon's paintings, such as Guy Combes' Tango feature the Soysambu landscape.

Congratulations Jenny!
