“Meko” Film by Pandion Creative Tells the Story of Bahamian Fly-Fishing Guides Impacted by Climate Change

Production studio Pandion Creative will soon announce the premiere of their feature film Meko. The film focuses on the impacts of climate change on the livelihoods of two of Grand Bahama’s original fly-fishing guide families.

Pandion Creative has generously supported BTT as a Chrome Partner. This partnership is the natural result of the synergy between issues portrayed in the film and BTT’s Bahamas Initiative, especially The Bahamas Mangrove Restoration Project. The project, which began after Hurricane Dorian devastated mangrove forests in Grand Bahama and Abaco in 2019, is now poised to plant 100,000 by the end of 2024.

The full-length documentary, produced in association with digital agency oakpool, stars professional fishing guide Omeko “Meko” Glinton as he navigates living in a coastal community negatively impacted by rising seas and extreme weather.

Said Pandion Creative founder, filmmaker Harrison Buck, “the best documentaries in my mind start out with a great story and uncover an even better one. We set out to make a film about a guide and his family. We could have never foreseen Hurricane Dorian doing what it did to Grand Bahama.”

Meko is set to debut on the 2024 film festival scene with a powerful message for those who hold affection for wild places and the people who live in them.
