Believe

Believe strikes another blow for the common surfer, a quiet, reflective statement of pure surfing devotion, as epitomized in the lifestyles of a fascinating cast of characters. The messages in Believe are simple and timeless - ride whatever kind of board fires your imagination, regardless of design fashion trends. Respect your elders, tend to the young, cherish the everyday, do what you love. It's refreshing to see the great soul surf documenter Andrew Kidman on the other side of the lens for a change, explaining his philosophies on surf, music, art, design and family, and witness him ripping on his fish with a raw power and style that belies his gentle art making sensibilities.

As well as the illuminating Rasta, Albe Falzon, Chris Brock, Neal Purchase and Kidman sections, there are also insightful vignettes on the Fitzgeralds, Steve Cooney and Damon Harvey, Beau and Nat Young, legendary board builder Joe Larkin, innovative photographer Dave Kelly and Matt McHugh from the Beautiful Girls. There are the pervading themes of inter-generational surfing, and the stoke of passing on your love of the ocean to your kin, and more exploration of the surfing/music synergy. But this film also has something poignant to say about loss and how great art can be born from grief, and that's a precious message to share.

Terry Fitzgerald, enjoying a new burst of shaping inspiration thanks to his talented surfing sons riding his '70s boards, points out: "Surfing needs to have variables, it needs to have variation. It needs to have more than just ... the high performance side of the sport because surfing is more than 10 points and $100,000. For most people it's a take off, two turns and a wipe out and that's what they've got to get through the week."

Music by: Andrew Kidman, Band of Frequencies, Nicko, Afro Dizzi Act, Milton Brown, Birds from Windy Hill, Will Corner, The beautiful Girls.
