Jago - a Life Underwater
Underdog Films


Jago - a Life Underwater, an Underdog Films Production in association with James Morgan Films, Fantomline Pictures and Vistaar Productions, was Produced, Directed and Written by James Reed. The score was composed and produced by William Goodchild.

From his ramshackle hut on the Salawesi sea, Rohani - an 80-year old free-diving hunter - tells us his life story as he prepares, once again, to dive.

The music features performances by cellist Kwesi Edman, vocalists Joanna Swan and Emily Wilmott, percussionist David Oliver, and guitarist Nick Pullin.

Jago - A Life Underwater has won and been nominated for many awards. See below for the full list.
