Adventure. Action. Ocean Life. The International OCEAN FILM TOUR Volume 5 is on its way with the best ocean adventures and environmental documentaries on board. 120 minutes packed with the most inspiring stories from the seven seas and the best watersports action of the year.
With 120 mins of sea-soaked action here are some of the titles:

PARADIGM LOST: Kai Lenny—kitesurfer, windsurfer, and big-wave, tow-in, and stand-up paddle surfer—is aptly described as a total waterman. The 25-year-old Hawaiian, who stepped on a surfboard for the first time at the age of five, is regarded as an exceptional talent. Like no other surfer out there, Lenny thrives on the water, feeling his way into the wind and waves, independent of the equipment. In Paradigm Lost, he shows us the ultimate watersports action in a variety of disciplines and in the best spots worldwide!

THE BIG WAVE PROJECT: The name „Nazaré“ makes all surfers’ hearts beat faster. The small fishing village on the Atlantic coast of Portugal has become synonymous with gargantuan mountains of water, massive waves that push the world’s big wave elite to its limits. When the tide is high in Nazaré and sets of Atlantic storms roll onto shore, only the best surfers dare to get in the water. We come aboard for a wild ride with Sebastian Steudtner, Garrett McNamara and Andrew Cotton.

WATER II: An ode to waves. Morgan Maassen plunges under the water with his high-contrast, slow-motion camera to show us the world, the waves, and the sea from a new perspective. WATER II is Maassen‘s visual declaration of love for his muse, the sea.

CAPHARNAÜM is a socially charged neorealist parable of the will to survive and childhood ingenuity, charged with emotion interlaced with warmth and humour.

After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain, a mistreated 12-year-old boy, sues his parents for giving him life. Zain is part of a large family that lives hand to mouth in a crammed, crumbling apartment. The kids work instead of attend school as their parents cannot afford it. When his 11-year-old sister is sold into marriage out of desperation, Zain flees his troubled family in the hope of finding a better life. An illegal Ethiopian worker, Rahil, takes pity on Zain while he is wandering the streets begging. She takes him to her shanty house where she lives with her baby, Yonas, and lovingly cares for Zain in a way his parents never did. Zain is suddenly left as Yonas’ sole caretaker when Rahil disappears, and is forced to resort to increasingly desperate measures to survive.

Director Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?) cast non-professional actors from backgrounds similar to their characters, resulting in authentic and extraordinary performances that you will not forget.
