Our latest film ‘Jago: A Life Underwater’ has picked up the top prize at the Jackson Hole Film Festival. Produced in conjunction with Underdog films, Jago tells the story of an old Bajau sea nomad I met in Sulawesi’s Togian Islands in 2013.
Through a mixture of interviews and cinematic reenactments, the film charts Pak Rohani’s extraordinary life; learning to dive, losing his son and coming to terms with his own mortality.
Shot entirely in 5K for a 4K master on Red epics, the film also makes use of experimental underwater rigs and aerial photography.
We don’t have a set release date but a sneak peek, courtesy of the festival, is available here:
