Los Plástico – They were looking for the biggest waves in the world to surf on the remote and isolated island of Alejandro Selkirk. Exploring among giants, surfers Kohl Christensen, Ramón Navarro, Patricio Mekis and Léa Brassy will find a bigger treasures than they expected. How do these outsiders discover a small group of people that can make big changes on our planet.
Smog of the Sea – The Smog of the Sea chronicles a 1-week journey through the remote waters of the Sargasso Sea. Marine scientist Marcus Eriksen invited onboard an unusual crew to help him study the sea: renowned surfers Keith & Dan Malloy, musician Jack Johnson, spearfisher woman Kimi Werner, and bodysurfer Mark Cunningham become citizen scientists on a mission to assess the fate of plastics in the world’s oceans.
Within Reach – After Josh Mulcoy’s first ever surf trip to Alaska in 1992, he was forever changed by what he saw and experienced. The trip not only resulted in him landing his first ever Surfer Magazine cover, but it created an obsession. After that first trip, he was hooked and a lifelong pursuit of finding — and surfing — perfect waves in this part of the world began. Over the past three decades, Josh has done whatever he can to return to this coastline that he is now deeply connected to. On a recent mission, misfortune turned into luck and Mulcoy discovered an entirely new wave in a familiar area. Within Reach is a film by Mike Cochran that tells the story of Josh’s dedication to this special place and the sacrifices that surfers make to chase their dreams. Shot over three years, the film highlights Mulcoy’s vision, his pursuit to find waves on the ever so cold Alaskan coastline and the rare moments of perfect surf.
