Surf Film Nacht Neuchâtel: Momentum Generation
20:30 - 21:59
Nouvague and Surf Film Nacht are stoked to announce the European Premiere Tour of:
MOMENTUM GENERATION (USA, 2018,Regie: Jeff Zimbalist, Michael Zimbalist, Robert Redford, VO Anglais)
This is the story of a group of surfers who defined a generation. Taylor Steele's 1992 movie ‘Momentum’ brought together the likes of Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian, Kalani Robb and more, who were spending each winter in Benji Weatherly’s house on O’ahu, surfing Pipeline and other infamous waves along the 7-mile-miracle.
26-years after ‘Momentum’, directors Jeff and Michael Zimbalist and co-producer Robert Redford, take us back to that fateful winter in Hawaii, providing access into the the story of this young crew that would forever change the future of surfing.
The documentary follows not only their lifelong friendships, but also the deep-rooted rivalries that arose when the most prolific athletes of their generation began a race to the top.
Incredible archival footage, the participation of the whole ‘Momentum’ crew, including Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, and the amazing surfing in Hawaiian waves make this film so unique.
Winner of Tribeca Film Festival, London Surf Film Festival and many more.
