The blue wonder on the giant screen: the International OCEAN FILM TOUR presents the captivating sea in all its diversity and beauty.

This exclusive program consists of six visually stunning documentary films and takes the viewer on a wondrous voyage of the cosmic ocean, well beyond ordinary cinema. The protagonists rollick on and under the water, showing what’s possible with a board under their feet, daringly defying the forces of nature, and arousing a desire to heed the call of the sea. 

Film Line-Up:

THE BIG WAVE PROJECT – 7 MIN

Big wave surfing in Portugal: The name “Nazaré” makes all surfers’ hearts beat faster. The small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of Portugal has become synonymous with gargantuan mountains of water, massive waves that push the world’s big wave elite to its limits. When the tide is high in Nazaré and sets of Atlantic storms roll onto shore, only the best surfers dare to get in the water. We come aboard for a wild ride with Sebastian Steudtner, Garrett McNamara and Andrew Cotton.

OCEAN RIDER – 35 MIN

Around the world in 220 days. Despite being in his landlocked homeland, the Swiss sailor Yvan Bourgnon dreams big. He embarks on a solo trip around the world in his cockpit-less catamaran. No protection against the elements, no crew, and 55,000 kilometres of open water ahead. On his journey, Bourgnon faces storms, pirates, and polluted seas.

PARADIGM LOST – 14 MIN

Kai Lenny — kitesurfer, windsurfer, and big-wave, tow-in, and stand-up paddle surfer — is aptly described as a total waterman. The 25-year-old Hawaiian, who stepped on a surfboard for the first time at the age of five, is regarded as an exceptional talent. Like no other surfer out there, Lenny thrives on the water, feeling his way into the wind and waves, independent of the equipment. In Paradigm Lost, he shows us the ultimate watersports action in a variety of disciplines and in the best spots worldwide!

DOLPHIN MAN – 30 MIN

DOLPHIN MAN tells the story of legendary freediver, Jacques Mayol. The Frenchman set several freediving records and was the first to break the magical 100-meter threshold on a single breath in 1976. Yet, no matter how deep his bond with the sea and the dolphins, the celebrated hero bore an emptiness throughout his life that was just as profound. DOLPHIN MAN is the portrait of a restless soul who searched the ocean for what humankind denied him.  

VAMIZI – 24 MIN

Off the coast of Mozambique, a pristine and dazzling treasure chest awaits —one of the oldest coral reefs of the planet. But this paradise of biodiversity is under threat. Coral bleaching is a warning sign of global warming. VAMIZI takes us into the fascinating world of coral reefs and shows what we can protect by establishing “hope spots”.

WATER II – 5 MIN

An ode to waves. Morgan Maassen plunges under the water with his high-contrast, slowmotion camera to show us the world, the waves, and the sea from a new perspective. WATER II is Maassen‘s visual declaration of love for his muse, the sea.
