The Ultimate Wave Tahiti
RATED: G | RUNTIME: 45 min. | STUDIO: Stephen Low Company
Playing at this theatre as part of the IMAX Film Festival running January 18 to February 21.
Filmed in Tahiti and among the islands of French Polynesia, the film showcases dramatic giant screen surfing action in a unique Pacific paradise. World champion surfer, Kelly Slater and his host Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolaer, seek out the best waves breaking on the reef at the famed surf site Teahupo’o. They share a passion for the waves, but different ideas about what surfing means: is it a modern competitive sport or an ancient Polynesian wave-riding art? The film also explores the hidden forces at work shaping the waves and the islands that lie in their path.
