Before the Wave
Molly Willows, 2016, Thailand, Burma, 24 minutes
World Premiere

BEFORE THE WAVE is a vibrant and poetic short documentary created with the Moken, a stateless tribe of sea nomads on the Andaman Sea. The community was converted to Christianity by missionaries after the 2005 Tsunami. The film will leave audiences feeling as though they’ve slipped away to some magical forgotten sea flotilla, one where certainty and hope melt with the burning sun, yet never fully cease.
