A Short from the Solomons

By December 14, 2015Film, Solomon Islands

I thought I would post this short film, shot over two weeks in the Solomon Islands.

The goal was to highlight the work of the Marovo Medical Mission, a group of international volunteers who try to bring healthcare to villagers living in a remote lagoon in the Solomons.

It’s an incredible place, far from the modern world. Most people use canoes to travel around, there’s little electricity and the healthcare complaints range from syphilis to crocodile bites.

The film was an entirely voluntary effort – we had no budget, only a small camera and basic top mic and none of the post production resources of a normal film.

Still, I am proud of it: for showing the incredible work these guys do and capturing a sense of this beautiful, isolated corner of the world.

I hope you enjoy! And please support the work of the Mission here: www.marovomedicalmission.org.
