    Five years ago, Jeff Arak set out to make a documentary about a group of volunteer lifeguards in Mexico that saved my life in 2006. Along the way, he learned that the lifeguards weren't the only group in Zipolite doing important work and not getting paid enough to do it. Piña Palmera works with people with disabilities and their families throughout the coast of Oaxaca, Mexico.

    The film that I created, Life on Death Beach, is an intimate exploration of life in Zipolite and the people that live there. You can see a trailer here. I am raising money to send this film to film festivals around the world. If you are interested in promoting water safety or disability rights; or if you are moved by the stories in the film, please consider donating to the campiagn.

    Suggested donation $20.
