What better day than the #SummerSolstice to announce that the much anticipated movie project A Life of Endless Summers: The Bruce Brown Story has entered post-production and will make its premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival, just down the road from his old Dana Point stomping grounds. If you can't make it to the red carpet roll out, 1091 Media says the film will be available digitally August 18th.
It's the year 1962. Bruce Brown, an ambitious young filmmaker has an idea for a new project — The Endless Summer.
The concept: Follow the summer season around the world with two surfers on a quest for the perfect wave. As it turned out, Bruce was on to something. Not only did the film become a hit, it earned a cult following, became the most successful surf film of all time and arguably made him the founding father of action sports films.
The documentary is directed by second generation, award-winning filmmaker, Dana Brown. Dealers may have seen some of Dana Brown's previous projects like Dust to Glory, On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter and Dust 2 Glory.
A Life of Endless Summers is the story of a man, a father, a husband, a filmmaker, a pioneer, a legend. See the trailer here:
