From the Water

Specs: CANADA | 2018 | 11.5 min
Filmmaker: Greg Hemmings
Theme: surf, urban renewal, urban development

FROM THE WATER follows the active surf and paddle-board community that formed five years after an intensive harbour rejuvenation effort in Saint John, New Brunswick. Set to a touching poem by Robert Moore, which was inspired by the local water keepers, this experimental short pays homage to the human capacity to right a wrong done against nature, and to nature’s ability to provide community members with an inspiring place to play in their own backyard.
