If Terrence Malick and the Dalai Lama ever got together to make a surf film, this would be it. A T.S. Eliot poem creates the debarkation point for this documentary about water and the ocean, as told by some of the world’s most legendary pioneer surfers. The emphasis of the film’s cinematography and interviews is to find the still place where true presence and peace can be achieved. Often, when surfers are riding a wave, they reach this state naturally and discover a place of connection not only with their inner life, but with all of life around them. What are the ramifications of this? And how can people reach this state more often in their daily lives, even when not surfing? THE STILL POINT is a unique new film from Canada, interesting to surfers and to all those who strive for a deeper connection to their lives and the world around them. - Russ Spencer
