|Synopsis||Follow the movement. Chase the lotus. For forty years, underground filmmakers Greg Weaver and Spyder Wills documented surf discovery as it migrated around the world. Their shots captured on celluloid became the images for such films as the Forgotten Island of Santosha, Big Wednesday, Pacific Vibrations, Stylemasters, Uluwatu and many more. This documentary is a cinematic journey inspired by many of the reels that were thought to be lost in the making of these films. Since that time, these reels have resurfaced and are now brought to light. A fusion of rare super 8mm film, photo stills and contemporary interviews blend together to make chasing the lotus the most in-depth look at surfing discovery ever made.|
