Living and Diving with The Bajau of Sampela, Indonesia.  (2015)


In 2015, Liz traveled to Sampela, Indonesia for the first time to work on the short documentary film ‘The Call From The Sea’ (2016).

‘The Call From The Sea’ documents The Bajau, an indigeonous sea nomadic group who have lived on the ocean for centuries. This short documentary addresses the future of our oceans and what we are leaving behind. It is a personal and poetic story about life as a Bajau and how our actions affect their world in Indonesia, thousands of miles away from the US. It has played in over 50 film festivals worldwide and in 15 countries.
