DOUBLE BILL: Jago: A Life Underwater | In Between
“Jago: A Life Underwater” is the story of Rohani – an 80 year-old hunter who hobbles around on land but who dives like a fish on a single breath, descending to great depths for several minutes to stalk his prey like a true underwater predator. From a ramshackle hut on the Sulawesi sea, this yoda-like old man tells his story, with the most beautiful images of the Bajau ever captured and dazzling re-enactments of his underwater adventures.
A production by James Reed for Underdog Films in association with Fantomline Pictures, James Morgan Films & Vistaar Productions.
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Cinematography Award, Editing Award, Music Award, People and Nature Award and Sound Award
The screening will be preceded by the showing of “In Between” - a hauntingly beautiful and poetic short film about a remote corner of the world where a living relic from a prehistoric age still exists. A magnificent creature that once roamed northern plains alongside mammoths and sabertooth cats, enduring where others vanished.
A production by Rolf Steinmann.
Wildscreen Panda Award nominations: Cinematography Award and Short Award

As this screening is outdoors we recommend that visitors wear warm clothing and bring something to sit on as seating will not be provided. Bringing a picnic is also encouraged as there will be no food or drink vendors at the event.
