About the Film:
Part of Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2018.
Directed by Jeff and Michael Zimbalist. 2018. USA. 103 min.
Before forever reshaping worldwide culture in the 1990s and beyond, surfing’s most legendary crew—including Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian, Taylor Knox, Benji Weatherley, Kalani Robb, Ross Williams, Taylor Steele, and Pat O’Connell—was just a group of teenagers living crammed together in a small house on the North Shore of Oʻahu. Fueled by camaraderie—but even more so by a deep-seated competitivenes—this tight-knit big name posse was dubbed the “Momentum Generation” after being featured in Taylor Steele’s groundbreaking films. They went on to win world titles, break records, and redefine the world’s perception of the surfer, youth culture, and what it really means to be free. Momentum Generation is the first time this iconic crew has agreed to tell their story together, giving the filmmakers unprecedented access to their inner circle and tens of thousands of hours of private archives.
Opening reception: July 7, 6-7:30pm. The festival kicks off with an opening reception featuring food by EAT Honolulu and live entertainment by Paula Fuga. Beer, wine, and soft drinks available for purchase. During the reception, guests can visit the exhibition Making Waves, which features works by international and Hawai‘i-based female artists who all have a relationship to water.
