In conjunction with our partners, The Delight Makers, we are creating a children’s film project: A Thousand Grandparents & Bed Time Stories.
Ocean Story will be recording inspiring and educational ocean stories from the journey and campaign of 2011 – 2013 to build the Great Ocean Story section of the film collection.
Storytellers are from many backgrounds: indigenous leaders, spiritual teachers, actors, musicians, artists and unknown heroic every day people. There will be stories told from ancient wisdom keepers and people of magic from all around the world and others will be told by the most modern of thinkers and explorers.
The project will also reach out through mobile cinema packs to children in impoverished areas, through agencies working with street children and through orphanages.
Uniting cultures across the globe, children will have the experience of being able to sit by the fire with an Eskimo and hear stories of the far north, or it may be from the Aboriginal Dreamtime, or perhaps a Native American Indian chief. Others storytellers may come from places more familiar and close to home, but whether from the far north, east, south or the west, the stories will be stories of real wonder and mystery and inspiration.
