Please Don’t Rush – At a school for the blind in Laos, children who cannot see are raised away from their families. For many, their parents have abandoned them, as the difficulty of raising a blind child in impoverished Laos is too much to bear.
Рыбалка (Rybalka) (Fishing) – There is a myth that children should be grateful for being taken from an orphanage. However, it’s not easy to earn the love of a child who has experienced the rough side of life. Gena is 9 years old and the orphanage his only home until a Swedish family invite him to spend summer with them.
Covelong Point – This is the story of Covelong Point, the first surfing village in India, and the story of one man, Murthy, a fisherman. With nothing more than a few old boards, a deep passion for surfing and teaching others to surf. Murthy strives alone to nurture the awakening of a new surfing culture against the backdrop of an ancient, simple culture. Lush cinematography and an amazing world fusion soundtrack will transport you to the rich seaside fishing village of Covelong Point. From the filmmaking team behind BBFF2008’s Best Film ‘The Laya Project’.For more information Byron Bay Film Festival (BBFF)
