Sachi Cunningham is many things: a university professor, a big-wave photographer, a mom, a filmmaker, a wife- I could go on. Most recently, Sachi added cancer survivor to the list.
“The ocean has always been a major part of my treatment. It’s just raw and wild out there, all you know is that what comes next might kill you but you learn how to keep your mind and body calm in those situations and turn it into something magic and beautiful. And I think that’s how I’ve tried to approach this diagnosis.”
Sachi’s short film touches upon her outspoken approach to being diagnosed with cancer, the way it has influenced her role as a mother, and her attitude towards life.
