“Protect: Coastlines, Guns and Women in the Low Country” Focuses on the Gullah/Geechee
“Protect: Coastlines, Guns and Women in the Low Country” is a pilot episode of a series which highlights stories in local communities around issues of sustainability. These features are produced using film, photography and editorials to examine the challenges around meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the U.S. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, to protect the planet and to ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The Gullah/Geechee Nation is engaged with other nations of the world in insuring that the SDGs are accomplished.
Two Lane Films decided to interview Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation (www.QueenQuet.com) and several of the citizens of Savannah, GA and other areas of coastal Georgia regarding their views on a number of topics related to their land and culture. From these dialogues emerged the film, “Protect.” “Protect” will be screened at the “Gullah/Geechee Nation International Music & Movement Festival™ 2018“ (www.GullahGeechee.info).
In addition to the film, Two Lane Films has launched their website at https://www.twolanefilms.com/protect on which some parts of the interviews will be heard. Tune in and listen to what is being protected in the Lowcountry which is home to the Gullah/Geechee.
