Self Discovery for Social Survival is a film that pairs international award-winning surfers in the world’s most jaw-dropping surfing locations with experimental musicians creating a live score to the wave.
Since the genre’s birth in the early 1950s, the surf film has involved a synthesis of image and music. Typically, these two key ingredients are sourced separately, mixed together only after the visual fact. Self Discovery for Social Survival subverts this recipe. Just like the osmotic waves that run through the film, the visuals and music of SDSS co-exist and permeate as one to reinvent and reimagine what surf films can look, sound, and feel like.
