London Premiere: The Accord Dir. RC Cone (19 min)
THURSDAY 22 SEPT, Genesis Cinema, E1 // SESSION 1 // 7pm >> TICKETS
The reality of growing up a surfer in Iceland is different from anywhere else in the world. It’s a harsh place that requires a particular mix of hardiness, patience and passion. But being so far removed from the hustle and bustle of the known surf world hardens Iceland’s surfers to confront the issue they all must face: the North Atlantic wind.
Heiðar Logi Elíasson journeys through Iceland searching for that rare compromise that brings both Icelandic surfers and the North Atlantic wind to the table. This wind is like a drunkard 10 minutes before closing time. He can be in the throes of a calm alcohol stupor one minute, fly into a fit of rage the next, and then, in a moment of pure brilliance and drunken unpredictability, the North Atlantic wind can be the most magnificent man in the room…
