The Most Fearless, interview with director Heather Kessinger
Director Heather Kessinger called us about the Kickstarter she had going to fund the completion of her documentary. Since then it was successfully funded, so we can all look forward to seeing this amazing film.
About the Most Fearless:
“In Bangladesh, 80% of the population lives on less than $2 per day, approximately half the children are stunted from malnutrition- a condition caused by the low social status of their women. Nasima was born at the very bottom.
At seven, Nasima was abandoned by her family after refusing to beg in the street. Later, alone and wandering her hometown’s filthy beach,she saw a man walking—“flying”—across the Indian Ocean’s rolling breakers. It was Jafar Alam, Bangladesh’s first surfer, and whatever he was doing, Nasima wanted to try.”
Here is the interview with Heather, followed by the video about the production. Original air date: 10/29/13
