JULIE (15 mins)
Born on the island of La Re´union, Julie Gautier grew up as a child of the ocean. Freediving and spearfishing became second nature to her but her passion lies in the creative process - as an award-winning filmmaker and a dancer. Fusing free diving and dance, Gautier leads us into a new territory of ocean life. JULIE is Gautier’s powerful story of finding her creative voice beneath the surface.

 

700 SHARKS (20 mins)
When Laurent Ballesta was a little kid, he didn’t play cowboys and Indians – he dreamed of an adventurous life like his big role model: Jacques Cousteau, pioneer of oceanic exploration and marine filmmaker of the first hour. A dream come true: Today Ballesta is not only a marine biologist but one of the most renowned wildlife photographers worldwide. In 700 SHARKS the Frenchman takes us along to the Pacific atoll Fakarava, where he has been studying the hunting behaviour of great reef sharks for four years.

 

ANDY IRONS – KISSED BY GOD (30 mins)
The life of Andy Irons reads like the surfer’s version of the American dream. Growing up in a struggling working-class family in Hawaii, his talent for riding waves was discovered early on, and it catapulted him into an unprecedented career in surfing. In KISSED BY GOD, we meet one of surfing’s all-time greats, a man who would change the sport forever but never managed to escape his own worst enemy in life and on the board—himself.  This is a special International OCEAN FILM TOUR edit of the film not available elsewhere which gives a new perspective on a truly great film.

 

CHASING THE THUNDER - OCEAN WARRIORS (45 mins)
The illegal fishing trawler “Thunder” was been making dirty millions for ten years – right until the ocean activists of Sea Shepherd caught sight of it. For more than 10,000 miles the Sea Shepherd vessels, the Bob Barker and the Sam Simon, chase the poachers across international waters to put a stop to the killing of protected wildlife. CHASING THE THUNDER is a real-life thriller in rough seas - an epic 110-day sea chase across two oceans and three seas, where an international crew and two fearless captains proof that conviction and resilience will make a difference where governments fail.

 

BLOWN AWAY - SAILING CONDUCTORS (7 mins)
Two music aficionados sail the world and start to listen: After graduating with a degree, the sound engineers Hannes and Ben want to see the world – and they find their perfect travel companion in Marianne: With this 9 meter sailing boat and no experience to speak of, the “Sailing Conductors” embark on a life-changing journey from Sydney to Berlin – with plenty of detours and stopovers on the way. In four and a half years Hannes and Ben call at ports in 31 countries. Their goal is to record as many local musicians as they can and connect all of them through music. On tape, the Sailing Conductors introduce people from across the globe, who have never met one another in real life. This sailing adventure has not only a unique soundtrack, it will also kindle everyone’s wanderlust.

 

SURFER DAN (7 mins)
Watch out for brain freeze. Amidst a blustery winter storm, the waves on Lake Superior are just right for Dan Schetter. Dodging sheets of ice, he launches in the water with abandon to do what saved his life: surf. Nothing clears the head like a plunge into cold water - precisely what’s needed when you want to leave your drinking habits behind. A sober SURFER DAN introduces us to his drug and remedy, proving that a real surfer needs no palm trees, no tan lines, and - most importantly - no excuses.
