Watch ‘KILLING WAVES’
Carlos Carneiro has been announced as the winning filmmaker of the ‘Generation Change’ film project partnered by One for One philanthropic company TOMS and pioneering style site Dazed Digital.
Having launched in July 2012, the ‘Generation Change’ film project aimed to discover truly inspirational individuals or groups that share TOMS philosophy of starting something that matters. The competition posted on the Dazed website, encouraged UK- based filmmakers to submit a proposal for a three-minute film that told an inspiring story with the winner receiving £5,000 to create their film. The winning clip was then chosen by TOMS, Dazed and acclaimed British director Lucy Walker (Waste Land and The Tsunami And The Cherry Blossom).
Fast forward to six months later and ‘Killing Waves’, the three-minute film from Carlos Carneiro will be given an exclusive Dazed Digital screening on the 22nd January 2013. The documentary tells the story of Surfers Against Sewage, an environmental charity based in the North Cornwall coast villages of St Agnes and Porthtowan. Established in 1990 by a group of passionate, local surfers and beach lovers the charity works to protect the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches so that everyone can enjoy them safely and sustainably. Their start-up campaign led to water companies investing £5 billion in sewerage infrastructures and the charity have since continued to build its catalogue of environmental successes targeting issues affecting beaches including marine litter, sewage, pollution, climate change, toxic chemicals, shipping and coastal development.
‘Killing Waves’ by Carlos Carneiro provides an insight into the individuals behind Surfers Against Sewage, set on a back-drop of the wild Cornish coast exploring their combined passion for surfing and campaigning for a better coastal environment that everyone can benefit from.
The Exclusive Screening of ‘Killing Waves’ by Carlos Carneiro will launch on Dazed Digital on the 22nd January 2013.
