Phenomenality – PREMIERE
Australia 2016 | Red 12:55MIN
Director(s): Lucas Jatoba
This is the story of a man who drowned… and came back from the dead to sleep with the world’s most iconic supermodel, Twiggy. A big wave pioneer who “died more times than Jesus”, a man who constantly risked his life to find life, to find the edge or reason and overcome it. His name is Ric Friar and this is a story of ‘Phenomenality’. And like all good movies there was sex, death, bar brawls, and a heap of shit. Friar literally became the “King of Poo” and made a fortune in the process. It’s a life that sequences more like a feature length dream: a truly wild concoction of adventures constantly intersecting with equal measures of insanity and bravado, an unbridled grabbing of life by tha balls.
FRANCE 2017 | 4K 3MIN
Director(s): Pierre David & Douglas Guillot
Into Bliss is a short inception into the mind of Jordan Rodin and an ode to the notion of free friction surfing. Far away from the competitive and commercial nature of surfing, and heavily inspired by Finless surfer Derek Hynd, Jordan embraces a free roaming approach, rekindling the emotions of why he fell in love with surfing in the first place. For the fun of it. No rules. No constraints. Into Bliss is an insight to the joys of free friction surfing and the sensations embraced by Jordan Rodin for his love of the ocean.
