THE FILM:

A fishline in hand, the sun on her neck and the constant rhythm of the waves beneath her bare feet. To Dora, this is heaven, here, fishing at sea, where she finds her purpose. The ocean’s vastness offers her an escape from the judgmental men of her small fishing village, men who disapprove of her passion, her vocation. The fishline digging into her hand and the tug of a fish at the other end fuels her desire to prove everyone wrong.

The passion which brings Dora joy brings grief to Steven, her boyfriend. A fisher woman in a world of men? Why does she desire what she cannot have?

Set in a fishing village in the Pacific coast of South American where most women are married before they are seventeen years old and where none of them are allowed to fish as the men do, we are committed to tell Dora's story.

OUR STORY:

We, eleven young filmmakers from Calvin College, embarked to a remote fishing village in the north of Perú and filmed a noble, heartbreaking, and truthful tale. Our professor’s dream, to return to his home country to direct this film has become our own.

We have concluded two extraordinary weeks of principal cinematography in the fishing village of Cabo Blanco where the generous townspeople met our project with enthusiastic support.

After 75 hours of shooting on land and sea we have also produce a documentary to promote the village's tourism and to address social issues that have arisen there. Back in the US, we are now fully invested in the post-production.

OUR GROUP:

We are passionate filmmakers: some still in school, some recent graduates, others  free-spirited artists united by the burning certainty that this is a story that needs to be told.

OUR FUNDS:

We have done our best to make this production as professional as possible which meant hiring a professional cinematographer, sound designer and cast.
Although many of them worked for near-nothing, there are still many parts of post-production that we need to pay for.  Your support will cover the remaining costs of:

LODGING, TRANSPORTATION & FOOD: Transportation of our cast and Peruvian crew from Lima to our location. Wages of the local extras and rental of locations (as a means to support the local economy).

POST-PRODUCTION: Sound mixing, music scoring, effects, all publicity material, as well as film festival submissions.

Any and all contributions will go directly to these aspects, and will be greatly appreciated!
