THE BIG SEA
SATURDAY 26 NOV
EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW SCREENING: THE BIG SEA Dir. Lewis Arnold
Surfing is killing it. This $10 billion global industry – built on the dream of carefree spirits, crystal clear waters and an even clearer connection to the natural world – has never been more popular. Surfing has set out its stall as the champion of environmental issues. But surfing has a dirty secret… and people are dying.
From award winning filmmaker Lewis Arnold and critically acclaimed writer Chris Nelson comes this ground breaking and compelling documentary. Shot over three years in California, Louisiana, UK, Ireland, France, Spain & Australia featuring Belinda Baggs, Noah Lane, Sandy Kerr, Lea Brassy, Patch Wilson and more with insights from the likes of Jamie Brisick, Chad Nelsen, Chris Hines, Amanda Chinchelli and other industry insiders, this film is set to shake up and wake up the surf world.
The price of the perfect wave is greater than you think.
This exclusive ‘work in progress’ preview screening is accompanied by a very special Q+A with Director Lewis Arnold & Producer Chris Nelson hosted by Looking Sideway’s Matt Barr.
