Hello To Hope: Behind the Water

MIAMI – A new film is shedding light on Caribbean’s water issues. National Geographic’s Doug Clevenger teams up with Fraser Kershaw to bring you the new film Behind the Water. The jukebox to the footage is done by Grammy Award Winning One Republic’s classically trained Brent Kutzle’s soundtrack

Kershaw said, “My actions do not have to be big, one signal awakens another and another.”

In the Caribbean the water problems are evident throughout the islands as the contaminated water can ravage the immune system. Even the most basic prisons in the world supply inmates’ clean drinking water.

Kershaw says, “No need for arguments, we know the movement grows. One person can make a difference giving back in a small way, with exponential growth that one person becomes ten, that becomes 100, that becomes 100,000, and that many people pushing to make the world a better place will do exactly that, a good place to start is by giving another human clean water. Brent Kutzle from the band One Republic says, “My goal is to accent the amazing story that’s being told here. To, in some way, help be the glue to connect the story to the heart. “

Kershaw says, “Pirates are the very lifeblood of revenue exploiting entrepreneurs. Yet, films like the ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ and ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’ have gone a long way to make pirates bootleggers and buccaneers popular. If you want to idolize outlaw behavior it can be seen as quitting your job, selling your belongings and helping. The truth of the matter is that modern day piracy is legal, and it heals. So put your bandana on and come heal instead of steal.”

“Behind the Water” weaves together the stirring true stories of individuals who have overcome devastating obstacles to find clean water. The film embraces the power of family and the commitment of conflict for survival. Fraser Kershaw takes a camera crew through highly restricted areas to find the deeply personal tales of stories from locals of Latin America. The filmmakers explore the power of heroic water related stories, which encourages viewers to find their own unique path to helping the world find a solution.
