Meet the team behind the documentary
The person financing / producing this film wishes to remain anonymous. As a long-term bitcoin holder, he went to El Zonte soon after the announcement of the new law and befriended the Bitcoin Beach leaders. Together they decided there was a need to bring this story to life. With the addition of film maker, Joe Delahunty, and podcaster, John Vallis, a plan was hatched.
Joe Delahunty is a London born filmmaker who grew up between France & Spain. His work has covered many areas including documentary film making - recently featured at a major film festival in Europe - and marketing campaigns, receiving millions of plays across the spectrum. Joe was inspired to show a different side to bitcoin: the human stories and how it's changing people's lives.
John is one of bitcoin’s most liked and well known podcasters, usually exploring the more human / philosophical sides of bitcoin. Having already interviewed the Bitcoin Beach leaders once, John knew there was far more to discover in this magical story. It was an ideal opportunity to return to El Salvador, dig deeper into how this all happened, and explore what it might mean for the future of our world.
