The surf documentary has a long and storied history. As seen in The Endless Summer and Riding Giants and dozens in between, surfers and filmmakers have been traveling the globe together for decades, documenting the unique lifestyle and incredibly beautiful sport.
The latest entry into this specific genre is out today. It’s called Strange Rumblings in Shangri-La and was directed by Joe G. The director shot the whole movie on 16mm film, which gives it a classic feel in a modern world. The filmmakers traveled from Iceland to Mozambique, France to Brazil and many places in between, all in the quest for “surfing’s own holy grail.”
