About the Film:
Directed by Rafael Mellin. Brazil. 2014. 70 min. Portuguese with English subtitles
70 e tal taps into the revival of surfing and beach culture of Brazil during the 1970s. Mixing archival footage, interviews and the best modern surfers ripping on classic boards 70 e tal tells the story of how surfing and youth culture found its feet under the noses of a repressive military dictatorship. Set to the perfect soundtrack, 70 e tal is an ode to the surfing, music, fashion, and the counter-culture scene of a romantic period in Brazilian surf history.
