This program features interviews with Charleston filmmakers Farrah Hoffmire and Mitchell Davis and two recent films that showcase adventurous projects that work with kids in South Carolina and Costa Rica. Web of Water Project (WOW) is an interactive documentary, bringing an exploration of South Carolina rivers into classrooms. By teaching and explaining how these waterways affect the students in their own lives they gain a better knowledge and understanding of science and history. On the kayak expedition, led by Ian Sanchez, educator, naturalist, and executive director of Lowcountry Environmental Education Programs (LEEP) we travel the great Saluda River watershed from its source in the mountains of South Carolina to the mouth of Charleston Harbor.
Footprints Journal: Finding Pura Vida is a short film that follows surfers who pooled their resources and started a one day surf clinic for a group of orphaned children from San Jose, Costa Rica. Seven years later, volunteer and professional surfers now travel annually from around the United States and Costa Rica for the one day event called the Pura Vida No Pro.
