We are a team of filmmakers who believe in the transformative power of art. Our upcoming movie, "Mamiwata's Cobalt," will take you on a rollercoaster ride through the captivating realms of Mamiwata's watery mysteries. The story weaves paranormal thrills and gripping drama while shedding light on real-life societal concerns: child labor, the environment, and the race to save our planet. Through characters like eccentric billionaire Alan Murdoch, and his co-conspirators Matadi, Yancey, and Zhan, we hope to send chills down your spine, make you laugh, and shed tears while reflecting on the question: is all fair in love and war on climate change?
Our conviction in the power of storytelling to entertain, heal, and inspire change is why we became filmmakers. We are driven by a shared commitment to the causes that inspire us, among which: the protection of children’s rights and the oceans, and the war on climate change. We would like to invite you to join our effort to protect all children everywhere and to save the oceans of the world. Please consider signing the petitions against child labor and the petition for a moratorium on ocean mining.
It is still possible to imagine a world in which all children are allowed to dream; a world where marine life is protected from the catastrophic impact of ocean mining. Make no mistake, ordinary people like us - all of us - can make that world a reality.
In Brazil, where she is associated with fertility and the powers of water, Mamiwata is known as "Iara." In Chile, the Milalobo protects marine life and influences fishing traditions.

The enchanting water spirit, continues to captivate and inspire with her profound symbolism in African folklore and beyond. Through these diverse cultural interpretations, Mamiwata's symbolism and influence unfold, highlighting the universal reverence for water and its intrinsic ties to our lives. Let us embrace the magical legacy of Mamiwata, drawing strength, protection, and prosperity from her timeless presence.
