synopsis
Powerful and harrowing story of the indigenous Miskito lobster divers along Nicaragua's Atlantic Coast who risk their lives diving for the region's most lucrative resource - the Caribbean spiny lobster. Over the past 20 years, hundreds of Miskito divers have died and thousands more have become paralyzed from decompression sickness, a diving-related condition commonly known as the bends. Through the voices of Miskito lobster divers and their families, as well as boat owners, captains, and doctors, MY VILLAGE, MY LOBSTER tells the story of an industry and a community in crisis.

director
Joshua Wolff has been in the education world for over ten years. He has taught literacy and mathematics to 6th graders in the Bronx, produced and hosted the first Discovery Educator Abroad program around the Pacific Rim, and served as a technology staff developer to help teachers and administrators push New York schools into the 21st century. He has also produced non-fiction media for a variety of documentary and NGO outlets - from video diaries with ex-child soldiers in northern Uganda, to short films for an NGO working in post-earthquake Haiti as well as vignettes for Verizon's FiOS television network. Joshua's passion for learning about other places and people was the impetus for the founding of Nomading Films, a New York-based film production company. Josh also co-founded The Nomading Film Festival, a unique film and video celebration that caters to travelers who film, not just filmmakers who travel. In further bridging his love for travel, education, and filmmaking, Josh created MyDigiStory, an international organization that trains under-represented and at-risk youth in digital storytelling. Piloted in Nablus, Palestine, MyDigiStory hopes to expand its reach to the African continent.
