This Too Is Liberia is a passion project  that I have been working on since the fall of 2018.  It is a feature length surfing documentary that follows Melvin Kabakole, a young surfer, from my home country, Liberia.

 

We have been documenting Melvin as he starts one of the only surf therapy programs in West Africa. He tries to bring the program to a reluctant community that has been devastated by drownings. Due to a generational fear of water safety education, he endures many challenges to reach his goal.
