2022 brings us Volume 3 of the One Ocean Film Tour. This year’s films include the following:
5 Summer Stories (Tour Edit)
Heralded as “the finest surf movie ever made,” Five Summer Stories is a cultural icon, a time capsule from a watershed era when the world was at a critical crossroads and its reflection was clear in the emerging sport/art of surfing.
12 Shades of Grey
12 Shades of Grey is the story of this expedition and the first hand, uncut views of those adventurers that looked below the waves and surfaced with a new appreciation for the Great White Shark.
Climate Under Pressure
“There is an abundance of information in the ocean’s depths that could be vital to our survival.” Come take a look at the wondrous and fragile ecosystems that lie far beneath the ocean’s surface, as we examine the deep-sea exploration and its impact on climate.
A short film documenting the quest of an NGO called SOMA, striving to create a better future for girls in Africa. The filmmaker Eduardo Vento gives us a glimpse of what it’s like to be a women in São Tomé and Príncipe island. A remote place on Earth, blessed with abundance, pristine nature, and epic waves, but plagued with rife inequality.
F1 icon Lewis Hamilton, Big Wave surfer Makua Rothman, and Pro Motocross Champion Dylan Ferrandis meet at the Waco, Texas surf pool and throw down an epic session of barrels, airs, and friendship among champions.
Aliquam ii – Cody and Eden
Giving a gift of the ocean to the next generation is more than just an ideology. It is also more than passing on the turbulence created by generations past.
The human brain and heart are almost three-quarters water; in the case of filmmaker Mike deGruy, it must have been higher. While you might not know his name, you know his footage: David Attenborough’s killer whales stealing elephant seals off Patagonia beaches, octopus squeezing through mazes, Blue Planet’s deep ocean footage.
The Art of Living Well series features inspiring films, speakers, and interactive discussions exploring ways of cultivating serenity, meaning, and a deeper connect
