|Synopsis||Heralded as the finest surf movie ever made, Five Summer Stories is a cultural icon, a time capsule from a watershed era when the world was at a critical crossroads and its reflection was clear in the emerging sport/art of surfing.
Against a backdrop of the Vietnam War and the Nixon years, Five Summer Stories was the culmination of the joint surf-film careers of Jim Freeman and Greg MacGillivray. Code name The Last Surfing Movie during production, the movie portrays a young, outlaw sport at a strategic point in its creative evolution--and at an historical crux in time. Now you, too, can do what audiences of the 1970s did--you can hoot and scream and go crazy--all in the privacy of your own home.
For the surfing afficianado, Five Summer Stories is an incredible barrage of audio-visual stimulus. SURFER Magazine
