TroubleThe Lisa Andersen Story
Vereinigte Staaten | 2019
Im Anschluss an Trouble zeigen wir die Dokumentation NAUSICAA.
Lisa Andersen is one of surfing’s few transcendent stars. She is grace and beauty coupled with tenacity and fearlessness. A 4x world champ and inductee into the Surfer Hall of Fame, she is a true icon. She discovered surfing when she was 13, though it was not what her parents wanted. They felt the beach was dangerous. Lisa did nothing to ease their concerns and eventually wound up in juvenile hall. Her father smashed her surfboard, so Lisa hatched an escape plan. She decided to go to Huntington Beach, leaving a note behind that read, “Going to California to become world surfing champion.” She was homeless before being taken in by an abusive local. Unlucky in relationships, she was abused often, and had to runaway time and again. Especially when she felt trapped. In the water, she was something else, and surfed like a gorgeous disaster. But she could never quite put it all together, until career suicide presented itself. An unexpected pregnancy. Over objections, she decided to have the child and in so doing broke through and became a champ. Trouble follows Lisa on her human journey. Surf is a beautiful backdrop but the real story is the epic poem of her life. It is the story of a self-made, American woman. It is a story of today.
Die italienische Onde Nostre Crew lud ein paar der stylishsten Longboarder zu einem Traumtrip ein: Auf zwei Segelbooten reisten sie auf den Spuren von Odysseus durch das Mittelmeer. Sie fanden bisher unbekannte Wellen, einsame Strände und maritime Abenteuer. Dies ist ein Film über die unglaubliche kulturelle Dichte dieser Wiege der Zivilisation, ihrer unbekannten Surfspots und über die Freude an einem einfachen Leben im Einklang mit der Natur. Der funky Soundtrack und das unfassbar coole Surfen besonders von Andy Nieblas bescherten diesem Meisterwerk Preise auf diversen Filmfestivals 2018.
