The search for extra-terrestrial life has always fascinated humans, as we look to the darkness above and imagine what sort of alien beings share our universe. Stay With Us suggests that maybe we’ve been looking in the wrong place – and introduces creatures far stranger than those we can dream up for sci-fi films…

SURFER DAN

Filmmaker: Tim Kemple, Camp4Collective

Sun, sea and sand typically come to mind when you think about surfing, but this is not your typical surf film. Landlocked ocean-lover Dan Schetter lives on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan where, in winter, strong winds across the water create deadly currents, icebergs and… waves. Known for being the crazy guy with an icy beard who catches waves in January, this is Dan’s story.
