Sleeping on Water: A marine biologist in Namibia

Growing up in Namibia’s desert interiors, Priskilla Nghaangulwa associated water with death. So when she decided to become a marine biologist, she had to overcome her aquaphobia and rethink much of her background and experiences. Now she spends her days on the seas, working for sea bird conservation and participating in the Albatross Task Force. Hers has been a long journey, emotionally and career-wise, balancing a traditional family background in a desert village with her new-found love of the sea. Karin Slater is an experienced South African director and cinematographer. She has won many awards, including at MIPDOC and the International Innovation Film Festival in Switzerland.  She is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Oscars) with films showcased at Sundance, Berlinale and MoMA.
