The saturated hues of India set the scene for this documentary that will touch upon eco-tourism, youth and women’s empowerment, biocentrism and personal growth. They have integrated these causes with the pursuit of India’s perfect waves, highlighting the undeniable power of surfing to bring joy amongst suffering.
Documentary-style interviews with the local Indian community, filmed by award winning cinematographer, Dave Homcy, has captured this rare and inspiring endeavor with the goal of sharing these stories with the global surf community and beyond. Homcy is best know for critically acclaimed work in “Sliding Liberia”, “Surfwise”, “A Broke Down Melody”, “El Mar Mi Alma”, “Come Hell or High Water”, “One Track Mind”, “Shelter”, and “Dear and Yonder”.
They intend to bring a spark of hope to the people they meet who face social disparity and suffering, and empower those without voices.
