For directing duo, the Right to Roam, the film is part of an initiative focused on excellent storytelling applied to human interest documentaries
Marshall Street Editors' Laura Cairney-Keize, working with co-directors Joya and Lucy at Odelay Films, formed part of the production team on an emotive ten minute documentary film about the Varadero Reef ‘Dive Tierra Bomba Dive’.
Commissioned by Adam Gee / Red Bull Media House London & Salzburg, the film is part of an initiative focused on excellent storytelling applied to human interest documentaries. It focusses on Yassandra, a young woman who emerges as a leader on her Colombian island to save the reef that’s vital to its survival.
Laura Cairney-Keize, editor at MSE.TV said: “This was a wonderful project to work on with The Right to Roam, I loved crafting together the traditional documentary storytelling with the more stylised dream like sequences. It is always special being able to give a voice to a young woman who is striving to change her community for the better."
Joya and Lucy, The Right To Roam, said: “Yassandra is a global inspiration, as an intuitive grassroots environmental activist. Her vital vision and voice demands climate justice for her island. This film opens up a conversation about resilient local communities, giving natives the tools they need to protect their local ecosystems. Hopefully the magical realist style to climate storytelling, reflects the power of imagination to envisage a more hopeful world. Thank you so much to Laura Cairney-Keyes and Marshall Street Editors for all your incredible work. We really are grateful for your collaboration on this, such vital voices to this film. You totally went above and beyond to accommodate us and make us feel welcome”.
Adam Gee, executive producer, Odelay Films added: “The dynamism and energy of this young female leader are perfectly reflected in this beautifully crafted film – this is the kind of youthful drive and ambition the world so sorely needs right now.”
