A MOROCCAN NEW YEAR
"Here I am, at the end of a road, wedged between a salt desert and the ocean, the sun falls little by little, the wind continues to be heard and here I am after 24 hours on the bus to where Nathan and I had planned to meet, far in the south for a new adventure."
Nathan Sadoun and photographer Nil Puissant head south to the edges of Morocco in search of empty waves and quiet landscapes, just in time for the clock to tick into the new year. It's a few days of fun, new encounters and some memorable sessions under the Moroccan sun.
Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp again... More and more it is more difficult to isolate ourselves, to escape from everything, to enjoy the silence. Silence… we are stupid enough so as to invent words that describe things that do not even exist!
In January 2019, snowboarder Mathieu Crepel and surfer Damien Castera, joined by photographer Greg Rabejac and lmmaker Pierre Frechou, traveled to the very northern tip of Norway for a boardriding expedition in the heart of the Arctic winter. In between snowy peaks and icy waves, they went deep into the polar night where solar winds meet Earth’s magnetic eld to create the fairy dance of the Aurora Borealis.
'Thank You Mother' is a cinematic journey of surfing, simplicity and appreciation. It is a film that isn't afraid to be beautiful, stylish and sincere. Produced by Torren Martyn and Ishka Folkwell with an original soundtrack by Nick Bampton. 'Thank You Mother' is narrated by award winning Australian film maker and life long simplist Albert Falzon, who made the seminal 1970 surf film 'Morning of the Earth'.
