After watching European tourists come and go for many years, Fettah takes off on an epic ocean journey along the Moroccan Atlantic coast to Europe on a windsurf board.
Atlantic. teeters on the edge of the transcendent with its whispered voice-over and contemplative faces, its roaming hand-held camerawork and arresting jump-cuts, and its images of natural phenomena both great and small, frequently recalling the heady aesthetic of Terrence Malick. Van Ewijk — an experienced windsurfer himself — surveys the surfing milieu with an insider's knowingness and offers astonishing images of open water unlike anything we've seen before. Wildly sensual and emotionally rich, seductive, and immersive, Atlantic. Is a story of adventure and self-actualization, of being lost — and found — at sea.
