Hello, my name is Mimi Miller, I'm so pumped to be bringing to fruition this fascinating Project. As Women of Color, our voices have been incredibly unrepresented when it comes to seeing our stories in the Surf World. Since being in the Surf life, I have been getting to know and connecting with a Sisterhood of Women around the World who love the Ocean just as much if not more than me. It's a very special bond we all have with each other because we know the obstacles and challenges as Women of Color we have had to face in life and with social, economic opportunities to be apart of such Cultures.
The mission of this Documentary is to give visibility to Women of Color in water sports and share their perspectives as well as the impact they are already making in this Surf life and the impact within their Coastal Communities.The opportunity to see ourselves (Women of Color) in the water sharing our unique talents paves the way for generational healing and unresolved misconceptions in addition to stereotypes about why Black Women don't Swim or Surf.
Coastal Culture's Budget goes towards additional Production/Editorial Assistance as well as to the Organization/Business of the Talent featured, Traveling expenses, Post Production expenses, additional supplies, administrative cost, external hard drives, promotion and publicity .I want to say, A very Special Thank you to all the Backers. Your support and generosity towards this project is so greatly appreciated, Sincerely Grateful for your Contribution.
