A year in the life of an Irish big-wave surf town.
BETWEEN LAND & SEA, the stunning new documentary by Ross Whitaker (Saviours, Unbreakable) spends a year in Lahinch, a small town on Ireland’s west coast, and the unlikely home of one of Europe’s best big-wave breaks.
This observational feature – at times intimate, at times epic – embeds itself within Lahinch’s surfing community to present a thoroughly engaging and visually stunning portrait of the ever-changing life at land’s end.
Against the backdrop of Ireland’s stunning west coast, this film digs deep into the day-to-day lives of the people who live and surf here, taking the audience beyond the bluster of the typical adrenaline-fueled surf film to create an intimate portrait of the diehard group of surfers who want their local wave to be known around the world.
BETWEEN LAND & SEA provides the most exhilarating of big-wave surf footage while also giving a moving, humourous and thought-provoking account of the ocean-going natives of County Clare.
