4:00 PM Keep Surfing
Director: Björn Richie Lob
Run time: 91 minutes
In English and German with English subtitles
Björn Richie Lob's exhilarating film debut took 10 years to complete. An avid river-surfer himself, he spent years convincing his friends to be on camera. The result is a kinetic and fast-paced documentary that will put you right on the Eisbach in the heart of Munich, the river-surfing mecca of the world. The film is a portrait of six surfers, among them river-surfing pioneer Dieter "The Eater," who still rides the waves every day with his two grown daughters, and Walter, "The Janitor of the Eisbach," a working-class philosopher who actually figured out how to keep the waves surging for 24 hours a day.
Stunningly shot in various formats, including 16mm and 35mm, KEEP SURFING displays an ode to going against the wave, to individual freedom, and to the people who have achieved happiness on a river wave. With cameos by surfing legends like Nick Carroll and Kelly Slater.
