“Kalani” Premieres this Friday at Surf At Lisbon Festival.
For the past 3 years, filmmaker Nuno Dias has been busy capturing the life of one of the most enigmatic phenomenons of the Big wave Scene, Kalani Lattanzi.
Filmed in Nazaré and Rio de Janeiro, this documentary portrays Brazilian waterman Kalani Lattanzi’s route, all the way from his origins and first contact with the ocean in Brasil, to Nazaré in Portugal. Where ultimately, with his body alone, no fins or boards or jets, he faces the biggest waves in the world, in the most pure form of wave riding: bodysurf.
“Kalani – Gift from Heaven” also counts with the participation and testimonies of some of the biggest names in the big wave scene, that crossed or witnessed Kalani’s path, names like Garrett McNamara, Andrew Cotton, Ross Clarke-Jones, Hugo Vau, Maya Gabeira, Carlos Burle, Nic Von Rupp, Lucas Chumbo, David Langer, Tim Bonython, Tom Lowe, Dudu Pedra and João Zik.
