A few weeks ago I had the privileged of screening the insightful, moving, and awe inspiring movie Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau which chronicles the life of Eddie Aikau, one of surfing’s greatest legends. Take my word for it you do not want to miss this film which is part of the ESPN 30 for 30 series (so you know it will be good).
The world premier, which runs from April 26-27, is co-hosted by The New York Surf Film Festival and ESPN. Tickets go on sale today: http://tribecafilmfestival.org/filmguide/51471ed0c07f5d4659000002-hawaiian-the-legend-of-ed
See you there!
Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau examines the legacy of the fearless big wave surfer and first-ever North Shore lifeguard beyond inspiring one of surfing’s most famous catchphrases, “Eddie Would Go.” Through interviews, reenactments and dynamic historical footage, professional-surfer-turned-filmmaker Sam George uncovers Aikau’s little-known personal and family history and finds a compelling allegory for the reclaiming of Hawaiian culture.
