Dir. Rory Kennedy | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 118 min.
Master documentarian and MVFF alumna Rory Kennedy (Last Days in Vietnam, Ethel) gets us up close and personal with big-wave surf legend Laird Hamilton. Rebellious by nature, he discovered that the water was a place where he could escape the friction he experienced on land. He successfully funneled his energy and fearlessness into a career of unbelievable surfing achievements. Part extreme-sports film, part rip-roaring account of a life spent conquering massive walls of water, the film celebrates both Hamilton’s lifelong desire to charge toward new frontiers and his intense commitment to taking on the next big wave—at all costs.
