THE STORM CHASER

7 minutes

Big wave windsurfer Thomas Traversa thrives in the most violent weather conditions, harnessing the power of storms to push the boundaries of his sport. But for Thomas, riding in the eye of a storm isn’t about personal achievement – it’s a chance to immerse himself in the elements at their rawest. The Storm Chaser is a genre-blurring short film about the profound encounters between humans and nature at its extremes.

TWO KINDS OF WATER

21 minutes (subtitled)

The 5,500km coastline of West Africa is home to some of the most diverse and dangerous fishing in the world. Skills are handed down from generation to generation, with fishermen putting their lives at risk every time they leave the shore. On the north coast of Senegal (a country whose name means ‘our boat’), fisherman Ishmaila Mbaye and his wife, Koumba, tell the story of these vulnerable fishing communities through poetic voices and lyrical journeys.

THE CUSTODIANS  

17 minutes

Meet the Scots who are restoring their local waters, one seagrass bed at a time. Commercial overfishing and bottom trawling have turned Scotland’s once-thriving west coast waters into sparse, lifeless deserts. The Custodians follows the work of four locals who are reclaiming their natural coastlines, restoring wildlife, creating sustainable industries and showing us how we can work with, not against, our ocean.
