Beyond – An African Surf Documentary

Documentary Film, AT 2017, 111 min, OmdU

A pictorial journey of wave movements: from Morocco via the West Sahara to Mauritania, into Senegal and to Gambia. In his documentary, Mario Hainzl traces the lifestyle of the surfing scene on the west coast of Africa; surfers from small fishing villages and large cities, people from the tourism branch and backpackers from Europe sketch their way of life and their dreams. All the world’s a/board.
