LS/FF 2012 UK PREMIERE
INTENTIO, Dir: Loic Wirth, BRA, 2012, 47 mins
“The funny thing about fairy tales, is that we forget about them so fast, we grow up, we sell our innocence and forget our dreams until we open our eyes, and wake up.”
Official UK Premiere. Filmmaker Loic Wirth serves up an independent, underground hit. Intentio is stylish, Brazillian and features waves you’ve probably never seen before taken apart by world-class surfers like Gabriel Medina, Craig Anderson, Chippa Wilson, Jean da Silva plus a host of names you’ll soon know about. The filmmaking is sharp, beautiful, with a touch of the art house and combined with a haunting sound track is set to become a modern classic.

“Loic Wirth weaves traditional and high-fi surfing together with travel-inspiring lifestyle shots…If you’re a fan of Globe’s recent offerings, or Castles In The Sky you’re to going wanna get your hands on a copy of Intentio.” ASL
