About the Film:


Behind the Tide
Directed by Romain Juchereau. France, UK, Australia. 2014. 66 min.
Filmed in Australia; Cornwall, England; and France, Behind The Tide provides an insight into creative individuals who have forged a living through their passion for surfing. From shapers to photographers, the film documents how art and a love of riding waves transcend geographical and cultural boundaries. Featuring great surfers such as Neal Purchase, Jr., Dane Peterson, Thomas Bexon, James Parry, Joe Davies, Nathan Oldfield and many more. Behind the Tide explores surfing’s nostalgia with the renaissance of longboarding, single fins, alaias, hand planing and tandem surfing. Filmmaker Romain Juchereau was on the road for two years, meeting artists, shapers, photographers and surfers. Behind the Tide is the story of that journey.

El Chino (short)
Directed by Max Esposito and Jonathan Wong. USA. 2015. 15 min.
Jonathan Wong would be next up in the four-generation Chinese lineage of Sun Sun Co., the oldest grocery store and wholesaler in Boston's Chinatown. A lifetime of endlessly stacking boxes and loading and unloading trucks while doing deliveries around New England has worn on him and he looks to break away from the family business to pursue a rather unusual career in the Northeast. El Chino is a window into an unlikely divergence of tradition and passion, an unexpectedly inspiring story of chasing dreams and chasing waves.

Winner: Spirit of the Festival Award, San Diego Surf Film Festival.
