The film “Buarcos – The Unridden Ones” will be shown in the Grand Auditorium of the Figueira da Foz Arts and Entertainment Centre, in a session with the production and directing team, as part of the program of the exhibition “The Sea is Our Land”, on display at the Meeting Point.
A creation by Timelapse-Media (in collaboration with the municipality), which won the Spirit of Festival award at the Portuguese Surf Film Festival in Ericeira.
Synopsis: “In Buarcos, one of Portugal’s oldest coastal villages, the longest right wave in Europe is running. It’s been like that forever.
Surfing emerged in the late 1960s, initiated by the migrations of surfers who year after year repeated the route of the endless summer on the old continent. After the introduction of surfing in Figueira da Foz, the mythical waves of Buarcos have been surfed by generations with one exception that is common to all of them to this day:
The big swells always got the better of the human condition and the big, perfect waves, for the sake of accessibility, rolled on their own. This movie tells the story of a local surfer who wants to change all that.”
