“Given to me was as much about the passing of knowledge from father to son as it was about searching for a new way to tell a story.”

GivenGiven is the simple yet powerfully contemplative story of a unique family legacy come full circle.

Told through the visceral experience of a 6 yr. old, Given follows legendary surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin from their island home of Kauai through 15 different countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations.

Set in wave after wave of stunningly visual earthscapes, Given blooms into a tender yet stirring exploration of a young boy’s understanding of life through his familial bonds and their reverence for nature.

Deeply moving, Given gives us the humbling contrast of a small voice voyaging through a big world as it finds its way home again.
