EUROPEAN PREMIERE LS/FF 2016 : Sorria Dir. Gabriel Novis, 2016 (45 mins)
Sorria or “smile” in Portuguese will make you do just that. Serving up an all star cast of Brazil’s hottest talents from Filipe Toledo to Caio Ibelli Sorria takes performance surfing to the next level. Featuring the eye widening waves of Mexico, Indo, California and Hawaii, Director Gabriel Novis has produced what Surfing Magazine has called, “the first surf film to rival the likes of Steele’s, Neville’s or Joe G.’s in terms of high performance surfing with, well…a point.” And we whole heartedly agree. Combining incredible cinematography, killer sound track and dream like waves, this is not to be missed.
Cast: Yago Dora, Filipe Toledo, Caio Ibelli, Victor Bernardo, Jean da Silva et al.
“The movie is a crazy attempt to inspire people and let them know that they should always smile no matter what, ” says Gabriel. “Enjoy life because everything happens really fast. So don’t take yourself so seriously…kinda cheesy, but whatever!”
