there is a film on the brink of existence, one that is beautifully captured, beautifully cut, and beautifully lived by the most amazing bunch of our time.
heard of Patagonia? hope so, if not the geographical location perhaps the outdoor clothing company? well THE MAN that started it all, climber, blacksmith, surfer, sustainable business man, and one rad grand-dad, Yvon Chouinard, did this all because of a dream that he lived. his desire to discover and conquer the wild in 1968 lead to the preservation of it for years and years to come.
a heart fell story that will make you wanna quit your day job and become a subject of the earth, has been revived.
by the masterful hands of director Chris Malloy, music director Emmett Malloy, and producer Tim Lynch (names you might already know as pillars of the surf community), a new crew of land & sea lovers alike, set out to make the journey to patagonia. what occurs along the way i can hardly wait to find out.
the sound track alone is enough to get me salivating. i feel like a little kid waiting for christmas.
enjoy friends enjoy.
ps. thanks jimmi-james for an amazing turn-on. (that sounds dirty, but is not intended to)
