Tangier island feature documentary


In development

STAYERS follows the tight-knit crabbing community of Tangier Island, Virginia, through a dramatic year as the islanders are fighting for a sea wall to save their home. And it all happens in the lead-up to one of the most anticipated presidential elections in US history.

The project is in development. It is directed by Julia Dahr and Julie Lunde Lillesæter, and has received support from The Norwegian Film Institute, Fritt Ord, Viken Filmsenter and Bergesenstiftelsen.
