Keeping Coast

Keeping Coast, a new film by Save The Waves Coalition, will premiere next week on March 19 and 20 at the Adventure Film Festival in Santiago, Chile. Festival screenings are at the theater of the Municipalidad de Vitacura, at Avenida Bicentenario 3800. Our film Pulp, Poo and Perfection and an exclusive teaser of our newest film All Points South are also showing at this festival.

The film Keeping Coast (Vigilantes Costeros) explores the watery inspirations and environmental reasons behind a wave of activism seeking clean coastal waters among the small communities of Chile’s Maule and Bio Bio Regions. Featuring profiles on prominent Chilean leaders, community members and everyday blue-collar environmentalists, this 10-minute journey is a coastal oceanic adventure embedded in the rivers, waves and galvanizing socio-ecological issues that are changing Chile's coastal regions.

Keeping Coast: clean water, strong communities. A film by Save The Waves Coalition. Director: Angel Marin. Writer and Producer: Josh Berry. Music: Cristian Klotz. In Spanish with English narration and subtitles. Year: 2009. Coming soon to USA in limited release at select film festivals and on DVD.
