A Deeper Shade Of Blue
Directed by Jack McCoy | AUSTRALIA | 2010 | 96min | (Q&A)
A DEEPER SHADE OF BLUE is a wide-angle overview of the history of surfing with close-ups of the best historical and contemporary surfers. It is not so much a surf movie as a film about surfing’s deepest roots in the subconscious, in ancient lore, and in man’s perpetual quest for a joyful relationship with the natural world. With eleven interwoven chapters, master filmmaker Jack McCoy finds connections between today’s leading surfers and those who came before. The film inspires an appreciation of what it means to be a surfer and of the soulful underlying power of today’s surf culture. This is a big picture of a memorable story, beautifully told. The story is captivating, but the film would be worth watching for the amazing surf footage alone. - Adapted from A Deeper Shade of Blue Website
