WINNER: BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD
SATORI Dir. Rick Wall
UK PREMIERE: Multi award winning documentary exploring the tight-knit crew of big wave surfers who have dedicated their lives to riding the huge waves off the shores of Cape Town, South Africa – Dougal Patterson, Grant Twiggy Baker, Chris Bertish & crew.
Captured in breathtaking cinematography, Satori goes deep into the community and into the line-up at two of the planet’s most notorious moving giants, the infamous Dungeons breaking in the cold, sharky waters below The Sentinel in Hout Bay and Sunset Reef that detonates a kilometer out in the steely seas off the small coastal village of Kommetjie.
Opening up to the power of the ocean is a moment of beauty, fear and ‘satori’ a feeling of instant awakening. While each surfs these waves for different reasons, this powerful film uncovers the connection that they all feel and believe in.
Presented by Director Rick Wall & big wave charger Dougal Patterson
