Children of the Wind Movie

Beschreibung: Children of the Wind tells the story of young children from the island of Bonaire who journey from humble beginnings to international fame through the sport of windsurfing, and how these children have transformed not only their island but the face of the sport worldwide. At their first international competition in Merritt Island Florida 2001, the Bonaire children shocked the world with their skill in windsurfing, bringing home twenty awards. This unprecedented achievement aired on CNN among other international news networks. Since then, this tiny island of 13,000 people has dominated the professional rankings in freestyle, including 3 of the top 6 in the world. More remarkable: Bonaire produces world champions in every age category of the ProKids competitions. What many don’t realize, however, is the humble background from which these children came, and the fifteen year struggle endured by windsurfing pioneer Elvis Martinus to bring windsurfing to the island. Our documentary will follow these children from their modest beginnings to the cover of magazines and what they learned in the process; how they took their fame and returned it back to the local people with humility and pride. This is a story of how powerful change can come from children willing and strong enough to persevere through physical discipline. It is a story of children brave enough to push beyond the perceived limits of their circumstance and offer new hope to their community. With veteran feature film cinematographer Peter Robertson (of Atonement and James Bond: Quantum of Solace) behind the camera, combined with the latest technology in HD filmmaking, Children of the Wind will bring to viewers an unforgettable and explosive experience. We will make use of archival footage, interviews, lifestyle and action scenes to tell the dynamic story of Bonaire's young windsurfers. We are currently fund raising for post-production, having just returned from a 3 week shoot in Bonaire this past May 2010. Stay tuned for our new official trailer coming soon!
