Bahari Salama

This short docufilm about sustainability from the Italian collective Tripodphoto presents us with a new initiative that is changing lives in Jambiani, a small fishing village in Zanzıbar. Locals in this East African coastal community bravely embarked on an ecological aquaculture project growing sponges as a means of preserving the biodiversity of the ocean’s fauna and improving their lives at the same time.

Bahari Salama demonstrates how one community successfully responded to the realities challenging traditional cultures world-wide in a way that protects both the environment and the local economy.
