“Living Isle” is short film about the lives of the Garifuna people living in the Bay islands of Honduras. They live on the second largest reef in the World and have been doing so sustainably since 1797.

In Honduras there exists a chain of islands known as Cayos Cochinos. Recognized as a one of the key sections of the Meso-American Reef to preserve by the Smithsonian Institute, TNC, WWF, and World Bank, commercial fishing has been banned and it has become a marine sanctuary. However, the Garifuna people have lived virtually the same way since the late 1700s, are allowed to remain within the sanctuary, using traditional fishing methods to survive.
