LS/FF 2011 UK Premiere
SIGHT|SOUND Directed by: Mikey DeTemple. USA, 2011, 42 mins
LS/FF 2011 hosted the UK Premiere of surfer/filmmaker Mikey DeTemple’s lovingly crafted ode to waveriding with breathtaking cinematography set to an eclectic soundtrack. The film follows a band of visionary surfers including Chris Del Moro, Kassia Meador, Alek Parker and Ryan Burch as they journey from the crystalline Tropics to the snow-fringed waters of the northeastern seaboard, with the talented individuals doing what they do best on fishes, logs, planks of wood and hulls. A modern classic.
“Icy New England and aqua Caribbean, old school noseriding and progressive airs all tied together by Mikey’s stylish aesthetic. The coloring is beautiful. The soundtrack is pitch perfect…Inspires serious surf envy.” The Inertia
