About the Film:
North of the Sun
Directed by Jørn Ranum and Inge Wegge. Norway, 2012, 46 mins.
Surfers Inge Wegge and Jørn Ranum spent nine freezing winter months on the isolated, uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island off the coast of northern Norway. They built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials and lived off expired food. But the boys brought with them two items of utmost importance: their surfboards. Because the remote bay holds a well-kept secret—some of the worlds finest waves.

El Mar Mi Alma
Directed by Stephen Jones. Australia, 2011, 55 mins.
In Chile, home to a long and diverse coastline, the sea holds a mystical and poetic, conscious and unconscious place within the cultural fabric. Shot by Hawai‘i-based cinematographer Dave Homcy, this film is an ode to Chile, its people, and the ocean that defines it. Exploring environmental themes and political undercurrents, director Stephen Jones paints a picture of Chile’s beauty and association with the sea, centered on the affectionate and intimate act of surfing.
