Sine Qua Non: The Psychology of Big Wave Surfing (short)
Directed by Richard Yelland. USA, 2012, 24 mins. Hawai‘i premiere.
Sine Qua Non is an intimate portrait of the mind set, risks, and lifestyle associated with pursuing monstrous waves around the planet, seen through the eyes of the world’s most decorated big-wave surfer, Greg Long. The film’s title, Sine Qua Non, is a Latin phrase, which, roughly translated, means, “Without which, [there is] nothing.”
