SINK OR SWIM: LEARNING TO SWIM IN THE MALDIVES (USA, 2015, 53 min.) Washington, D.C. Premiere
Locals of the Maldives live mere feet above stunning turquoise waters but, because they cannot swim, they lack an intimacy with the fragile subsurface ecosystem. Determined to turn these island dwellers into lifelong guardians of the neighboring threatened marine
resources, One Ocean Media Foundation spent two weeks outfitting third graders and their mothers with snorkel gear. Watch these inspiring families witness the majesty of their underwater world for the first time. Directed by Jon Bowermaster. Produced by One Ocean Media Foundation and Slow Life Foundation.

Discussion with filmmaker Jon Bowermaster follows screening.

FREE. Reservations required.
