About the Film:

Directed by Roberto Studart. Brazil / USA. 2016. 75 min. English and Portuguese with English subtitles.
Mad Dogs tells the story of three Brazilian surfers who went in pursuit of the dream of surfing the biggest waves in the world, and within just a few years wrote an important chapter in the history of big wave surfing. Danilo Couto, Yuri Soledade and Marcio Freire, better known as the “Mad Dogs”, changed the history of giant wave surfing by being the first to paddle—rather than be towed—into he deadly waves of Jaws, in Pe‘ahi, Hawai‘i, where swells can easily reach 30 feet.
The stars of the film, Danilo Couto, Yuri Soledade and Marcio Freire, will be in attendance for a special post-screening Q&A session.
