Eliza’s film was just awarded with a Honorable Mention at LAFF. The Jury said: “For its deeply moving account of human struggle in the natural and spirit worlds, told with both harrowing immediacy and stunning visual poetry, an honorable mention goes to Eliza Kubarska’s Walking Under Water.”
Our film Walking Under Water is finished. Being praised for its unique cinematic quality, the audience also reacted greatly on the main protagonists: Sari, a young sea nomad from the Badjao tribe and his uncle, the compressor diver from Mabul Island. Their culture is on the verge of extinction and the Badjao are driven to the land. As they neither have nationality nor passport they also do not have access to the education system in Malaysia. We want to open a school for Badjao kids! We launched the campaign and we would be happy if you took five minutes of your time to have a look. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sari-goes-to-school
