I’m very proud to present the first official trailer for the short documentary, ‘Coming Out of the Shadows – Albinism in Fiji’.
I went to Fiji in August last year to shoot a conference in Suva – The First Fiji Albinism Awareness Symposium. It was organised by Sydney dermatologist Margot Whitfeld, who has done a lot of work and research in Fiji. Her sister Anna Whitfeld is a friend of mine and it was through Anna I heard about Dr Whitfeld’s work and the upcoming symposium.
With very little preparation time before flying to Suva, Anna and I decided it would be great to make a short documentary as well as the conference videos I was doing for Dr Whitfeld. It seemed such a fascinating story.
We weren’t wrong there.
I’ll let you know more about it as I progress through the edit.
I hope you enjoy the first trailer.
