The Films


The illegal fishing trawler “Thunder” was making dirty millions for ten years – right until the ocean activists of Sea Shepherd caught sight of it. For more than 10,000 miles the Sea Shepherd vessels, the Bob Barker and the Sam Simon, chase the poachers across international waters to put a stop to the killing of protected wild life. CHASING THE THUNDER is a real-life thriller in rough seas - an epic 110-day sea chase across three oceans and two seas, where an international crew and two fearless captains proof that conviction and resilience will make a difference where governments fail. (Vol. 6)


Born on the island of La Réunion, Julie Gautier grew up as a child of the ocean. Free diving and spearfishing became second nature to her but her passion lies in the creative process - as an award-winning film maker and a dancer. Fusing free diving and dance, Gautier leads us into a new territory of ocean life. JULIE is Gautier’s powerful story of finding her creative voice beneath the surface. (Vol. 6)


Hawaii: The ultimate surfer’s paradise and John Florence’s birthplace – in other words the perfect playground to become a champion of the waves. Now John teams up with his closest friends and fellow surfers to discover the world’s best surf spots. From the South Pacific to South Africa - John manages to rediscover surfing in its purest form. Incredible rides paired with action shots in 4K quality make „View From A Blue Moon“ an epic surfing film. (Vol. 3)

Once a rookie amongst his peers, Kai Lenny has evolved into one of the most versatile surfers (PARADIGM LOST). For Heiðar Logi, all it takes to surf is guts and a beer-fueled bargain with the North Atlantic wind on Iceland (THE ACCORD). When Mexican amateur crew of sailor Ramón Carlín gives the sailing elite a run for their money in the world’s first round-the-world sailing race (THE WEEKEND SAILOR) and SONIC SEA explains an invisible force threatening life under the waves: Sound pollution.



The skipper Tracy Edwards' big dream is to participate in the prestigious Whitbread Round The World Race with an all-women crew. MAIDEN tells the singular story of this pioneering voyage and Edwards' struggle against the chilly head wind and open machismo in the male dominated sailing scene of the 1980s.
