Found this when I was prepping for class tomorrow … on The Kitchen Sisters (audio producers) website. They’ve included the trailer and some explanatory text as part of their Hidden World of Girls series … although I can’t find an audio piece on this that they’ve produced.
Kitchen Sisters: “We were recently turned onto the film, One Winter Story, by filmmakers Sally Lundberg and Elizabeth Pepin about the big-wave surfer Sarah Gerhardt.” I can see why – the imagery in this enchanting clip is breathtaking – it was shot in b&w 8 & 16mm film, which gives these shots of big waves and surfing a poignancy that might be missing otherwise. A surfing movie without blue water? Or the sound of waves? I don’t miss either in this trailer.
Looks like they’ve made quite a few girl surfer movies … or maybe they just sell what’s out there on their website. I thought about my surfer-girl niece – the one who’s a senior in high school and who’s trying to figure out which college will offer her the closest or best place to surf.
