Step Into Liquid
Bruce Brown had made ‘The Endless Summer’, a classic surfing film and his son, Writer-Director Dana Brown follows up on him and makes “Step into Liquid”, which takes a modern take into this heart-pounding sport and brings the viewers up, close and personal with the gigantic, enormous waves.
Ken “Skindog” Collins, Laird Hamilton, Rochelle Ballard, and Gerry Lopez, who are dedicated surfers, are featured in this documentary film, seen wandering in search of and testing the different water bodies, ranging from the shores of Ireland to the beaches of Vietnam; Junior is eager to capture the sport as a broader phenomenon, showing women, kids, and men caught in curls everywhere and in one part, he hangs on with a group of top female surfers and takes to Tahiti’s famous Teahupo’o Beach.
He goes beyond filming a disconnected movie and even follows three Irish brothers, introducing a few local kids to surfing and trying to create harmony between the Protestants and Catholics.
It is an adrenaline rushing sport and Dana does complete justice in bringing it to the screen by enhancing the picturesque shots through slow-motion camera work and lots of creativity in the direction of this film.
