Leven’s boyfriend Geoff set out to produce a surfing movie with Ryan Phillipe in New Guinea. The story they ended up with is so much more than just undiscovered waves; they found a truly untouched culture.
Since the crew was a group of surfers, NOT journalists, they were allowed entry into a press-free zone. During their journey they observed and interacted with the locals who let them into their world. What they experienced was extreme cannibalism, human rights issues (rape, torture, etc), and at one point appear to fear for their lives. It’s all real and it’s all on film.
Now they need the money to finish ISOLATED, a project that has been in the works for 6 years. Piers Morgan got wind of it and had both Geoff and Ryan on his show as guests. The Surfrider Foundation is another big supporter.
Let’s support the cause, help the people who brought this to life, and possibly change the lives of those isolated in a culture we would never survive in.
