In spite of our beachfront proximity, hardcore surf fiends are quick to tell you South Florida waves dont cut it this part of the Atlantic is more tranquil than hang ten-able. But that didnt stop FLIFF from diving right into an acclaimed documentary about a group of California kids aspiring to become professional surfings next Big Kahunas. Chasing the Dream (narrated by noted Hollywood loose-cannon Gary Busey) gleams insight into the daily lives of eight serious surfers as they seek out the perfect wave. It also features interviews with some of the all-time greats, like Kelly Slater and Mark Richards.
