About the Film:
Free screening presented by Anna Trent Moore.
Anna Trent Moore, curator of the Bud Browne Film Archives, used archival footage from surf-film pioneer Bud Browne to create this poetic, moving film about early 1950s and ’60s surfing. Weaving together vintage black-and-white scenes of Mākaha Bowl surfing, surfers in California, Gerry Lopez at his Pipeline zenith and other precious footage that hasn’t been seen in years, Anna Trent Moore takes the viewer from the birth of big wave surfing in the early 1950s through the short board evolution and more.
Special guest: Filmmaker, curator and author Anna Trent Moore speaks about the making of Wake Unto Blue and the birth of surf filmmaking.
Anna Trent Moore is the daughter of big wave surfing pioneer Buzzy Trent. She was born and raised in Mākaha, Hawai‘I, where Bud Browne filmed much of Big Mākaha Point surf. Although she will always call Hawai‘i home, she now lives on the Central Coast of California, where she writes about her father’s and Bud’s people.
