A documentary about Philippa is scheduled to commence on Nevis in November 2015. The treatment and scripts have been also completed and accepted by our producers.

A talented team of respected film makers have gathered giving their time and talent to make this project happen.

DAVID PARFITT - Oscar winning Film Producer who will be Producer of this project, says:

"Rivers of Time" is an important project that needs to be made. It is the story of how one woman changed her country, Nevis, and the story of a newly discovered continent. Her intense will power, resilience and humanity is a lesson to us all and an enthralling triumph of the human spirit. I am proud to be involved in this project and give it my support."

ROBIN BEXTOR - BAFTA winning Producer and Director will be Director of this project, says

"This film is a story of one remarkable woman and how she influenced everyone she came into contact with. It reminds me of The British Schindler - the Columbus award-winning documentary I directed - that showed how one man changed the future of hundreds of children. Here one woman is changing the future of a nation.

Not only did she help establish a successful island community, but she remains loved by people of all races to this day. June Goodfield is a remarkable historian who, through her amazing detective work, has brought to light this incredible saga. I am delighted to be able to help tell this story.

In 2014, David and Robin worked together on a BBC film about the renowned opera setting of Glyndebourne. This year they have pledged to help Rivers of Time achieve similar success.

Filming is scheduled to commence on Nevis in November 2015. We are in a strong position, over the past few years extensive work has taken place, including a major reconnaissance on Nevis, identifying locations, contacts, and local staff. The treatment and scripts have been also completed and accepted by our producers.
