A love letter to the ocean.
I was completely overwhelmed when I first saw the trailer for View from a Blue Moon. I knew I needed to watch and own it as soon as possible. Taking this film in is such a visceral experience for me. The title sequence alone is enough to make my head explode. In the opening, they capture the ocean as a piece of moving abstract art, allowing us to take in all of its textures. The talent, artistry, and connection to the ocean that fueled the making of this work is so inspiring.
View from a Blue Moon is a love letter to the ocean and the celebration of a person who has managed to become one with the sea. Everyone should watch this insanely beautiful film.
"See the sport of surfing as it’s never been captured before in John Florence and Blake Vincent Kueny’s second signature release, in association with award-winning film studio, Brain Farm. The first surf film shot entirely in 4K, View From a Blue Moon follows the world’s most dynamic surfer John Florence and his closest friends from his home on the North Shore of Oahu to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the dreamy blue perfection of the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa (and everywhere in between), Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal — to redefine what is possible in the ocean.
