About the Film:

Part of the Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2017

Directed by Jess Bianchi. USA. 2016. 84 min.
Kaua‘i surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin (Singlefin: yellow) set off on a year-long global adventure with a toddler and a newborn. Follow their globetrotting in this cinematically stunning film, told through memories of their six-year-old son—Given. They travel through 15 countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations. Set in wave after wave of stunningly visual earthscapes, Given blooms into a tender yet stirring exploration of a young boy’s understanding of life through his familial bonds and their reverence for nature. Deeply moving, Given gives us the humbling contrast of a small voice voyaging through a big world as it finds its way home again.

Film sponsor: 

July 8 at 1pm: Three-time world champion surfer Carissa Moore will speak briefly to introduce the film and be available for a meet and greet after the screening.
