Daisy Johnson

This past summer, Daisy spent a month in Bali, Indonesia, capturing the story of a man named Darmawan and his fight to preserve the centuries-old practice of living in harmony with nature in the wake of increasing plastic pollution. Through his organization, Keep Bali Beautiful, Darmawan has been working to spread the message to recycle and has successfully created a village recycling system. Daisy’s goal, along with another University of Michigan student, was to spread Darmawan’s story through the context of a greater conversation on ocean plastic. They interviewed Darmawan and other stakeholders and are currently in the editing phase of their film, Palemahan. The proceeds of this film will be dedicated to helping create more educational films for the people of Bali, as well as creating and funding recycling centers in rural villages.
