Riding Giants directed by Stacy Peralta
(documentary, 1 hour 45 minute, 2004)

Part sports history, part thrill ride, skateboarder Stacy Peralta's documentary pays homage to the brave, foolish surfers who dare ride the world's biggest waves. Peralta lays out the evolution of big-wave surfing from the '50s to today, touching upon changing trends and the constant search for ever larger waves. Then he shifts his focus to a handful of contemporary surfing superstarts, among them Jeff Clark, pioneer of San Francisco's remote waves, and Laird Hamilton, known for tow-in riding.

Afterglow Directed by Nick Waggoner & Mike Brown
(11 min 35 sec, 2014)

From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.

The Legend of Eddie Aikau directed by Sam George
(documentary, 90 min, 2013)

The Legend of Eddie Aikau examines the legacy of the fearless big wave surfer and first-ever North Shore lifeguard beyond inspiring one of surfer's most famous catchphrases, "Eddie Would Go." Through interviews, re-enactments and dynamic historical footage, professional-surfer-turned-filmmaker Sam George uncovers Aikau's little known personal and family history and finds a compelling allegory for the reclaiming of Hawaiian culture.

Northern Grease
(documentary, 1:15:21, 2016)

An independent documentary that blends the rush of snowboarding and surfing with powerful story telling of the threats fossil fuel expansion is already having in northern communities. The adventure leads the crew to communities on the front lines of resource extraction, from the Alberta tar sands; Canada's largest growing greenhouse gas emitter, to a front line Indigenous blockade, an area also commonly known as the Sacred Headwaters. From mechanical mishaps, adventures, new teachings and perseverance the crew blends unique interviews with farmers, students, Indigenous leaders, politicians, and oil/gas workers to present the often rarely heard voices and concerns of those involved in these industries. Along the way, the crew also spend time with the people who, using alternative and renewable energy sources, lead lifestyles that present solutions. All in all, Northern Grease tells a story of young snowboarders and surfers learning the real social and environmental impacts of resource extraction. Through humor, adventure and an evolving critical perspective, Northern Grease depicts the often untold stories of those on the front lines.


Further details of films will be released in the coming weeks.
