The Lighthouse International Film Culture is launching its Winter season Virtual Cinema Sequence Jan. 7-11 with a digital screening of “BIG vs Smaller.”
It is, I guess, a surfing film. But somehow it ends up in a frozen lake in Finland, not specifically a browsing hotspot. Here’s how the LIFS describes it:
“‘BIG vs SMALL’ is a modern-day-day fairy tale stretching from monster waves in Portugal to the dark stillness of a much-north, frozen Finnish lake. It’s about power and energy on leading of the drinking water and experiencing demons less than it. A story of overcoming concern, bravery and relocating on. Documentary in English, Finnish, subtitled in English. Thank you to our sponsor – SouthEnd Surf N’ Paddle of Beach front Haven for their assistance.”
The 76-moment documentary facilities about Joana Andrade, a Portuguese specialist huge wave surfer. “When I slid on the waves for the 1st time, I felt quickly linked with the sea, and I understood it would be portion of me for the relaxation of my life,” she told surfertoday.com in 2019. But Andrade has an comprehensible problem. She fears drowning. Thinking about she surfs some of the most important waves in the environment that is not outrageous.
So she traveled to Finland to study with an teacher, named apparently enough, Johanna, to analyze breath keeping. Why she could not learn to hold her breath in far more temperate climes stays a thriller. Let’s facial area it, answering that dilemma is a great cause to watch “BIG vs Modest.”
“I’d like to display that below ice schooling can be the alternative to minimize drowning incidents in browsing, thanks to the improvement of the mind’s ability,” the film’s director, Minna Dufton, advised surfertoday.com. Intriguing.
“BIG vs SMALL” will be practically screened Jan. 7-11 by the LIFS. Tickets are $6 and may be acquired online at lighthousefilmfestival.org. It is no cost for associates of the LIFS and youth teams.
On Jan. 10 at 2 p.m. the LIFS will host a Zoom Q&A featuring Dufton and Andrade. When you acquire your ticket you will be emailed the Q&A Zoom info. —R.M.
