If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.
If you can dream it, you can become it.
William Arthur Wards is credited with creating that phrase – and what I hope is truth. I do imagine our world’s oceans, rivers and lakes being pristine and healthy for my granddaughter and her granddaughter. (LINKS to FILM Projects on that topic)
What message will we pass on? Stories from water-environment conscious filmmakers can positively impact many, many others. Elder SUP supports a centuries old ancient tradition called Hoe He’e nalu in the Hawaiian language. Throughout areas of the world in which paddling was the main form of transportation and livelihood, the people revered their waters. The very isolation and island-geography that makes many of these places so compelling also multiply the challenges of keeping their water-lifeblood healthy.
Film is the medium that has become a powerful tool in this digital age – keeping costs low and potential for great quality high. We want to connect social consciousness through the people and stories discovered by Elder SUPers.
