Sea Gypsies

Elena Zervopoulou



What if you were forced to leave your home? On the Idyllic coral island in eastern Malaysia, increasingly tight fishing restrictions are making it difficult for the locals to survive. Life was once simple for the people on the island, but now the fishing restrictions make it hard to find food. Indanina fantasizes about life better life. She must make a choice - stay and risk starvation, or move to the city. The film explores the relationship between money and choice - Indanina and her family have little wealth, and are helpless against those who have a lot. With more and more tourists seeking out remote places to visit, is there a danger they're ruining the very idylls they are searching for?
