Loving Belize


I filmed Loving Belize in 2013. After my adverntures traveling through Mexico, I arrived at the boarder of Belize. Very quickly after meeting a few Belizeans I realized I was going to be there for a while. I stayed 8 months. There is a terrible documentary, made by Ross Kemp called 'Gangs of Belize', which has crippled Belize and Belizeans self confidence. Negative media such as 'Gangs of Belize' does not help the people watching or the people it's about. I think it only adds to the problem. I have tried to give Belizeans a voice through interviews with people of all walks of life, letting them tell you, what ever they wanted. I tried to edit the footage with as much honesty to the person as possible. 'Loving Belize' also tells you the story of my personal experiences in Belize.
