Heralded as "the finest surf movie ever made," Five Summer Stories is a cultural icon, a time capsule from a watershed era when the world was at a critical crossroads and its reflection was clear in the emerging sport/art of surfing.
Against a backdrop of the Vietnam War and the Nixon years, Five Summer Stories was the culmination of the joint surf-film careers of Jim Freeman and Greg MacGillivray.
Code named "The Last Surfing Movie" during production, the movie portrays a young, outlaw sport at a strategic point of its creative evolution-and at an historic crux in time.
"Five Summer Stories" is Greg MacGillivray and Jim Freeman's last surfing film. It is the culmination of a ten year celebration in celluloid that includes the classics "Free and Easy, Waves of Change and The Sunshine Sea".
In Five Summer Stories, Greg and Jim give us five exciting, controversial and beautiful stories about surfing. From these stories comes a perspective on surfing that warns of the future while it warms the present.
SUMMER: NOT A SEASON BUT A STATE OF MIND.
