Ep.97 – Connecting Worlds
Filmmaker and explorer, Celine Cousteau, carries on an incredible family legacy set by her grandfather Jacques Cousteau, her father Jean-Michel Cousteau and her mother Anne-Marie Cousteau, an expeditionary photographer. With her creation of CauseCentric Productions, Celine has connected the dots between film, art, technology and education to create a platform of immense change in her own right though.
Her platform is currently shining a spotlight on the remote Vale do Javari region in the North-western portion of the Brazilian Amazon, led in the form of Tribes on the Edge, a film and campaign aimed at raising awareness about the critical needs of 5,000 Indigenous people from five contacted tribes and 2,000 uncontacted in about 13 distinct groups living voluntarily in isolation.
We talk to Celine about the connected nature of her work and the fact that what happens in places like the Amazon affect us all.
