Heather Kessinger

Director/Producer

(sometimes editor, photographer and travel agent)

After reading Jaimal’s AFAR Magazine story about Nasima and surfing in Bangladesh she knew this would be her next film. Nasima’s story is compelling whether she is striving to be a surf star in Australia, San Diego or Nicaragua – but exceptional that she is doing this in her home country of Bangladesh – where women don’t even swim in public.

An award winning doc filmmaker, ‘In the Shadow of Buddha’ is her most recent film. It has had a successful festival run, winning multiple awards including ‘Best Documentary’ at the Religion Today Festival screeing in six cities in Italy and culminating at the Vatican City.

Heather is proud to be on the board of the new US based non-profit The Bangladesh Surf Girls and Boys club. The sole purpose of this non-profit is to support the amazing kids who are surfing and studying on the beach in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.
