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 has received support from The Norwegian Film Institute, Fritt Ord, Viken Filmsenter, The Rogovy Foundation and Bergesenstiftelsen.
