Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton tracks the remarkable life and legendary career of big wave surfer Laird Hamilton. Charismatic and intense, Laird is always up for a challenge, ready to reinvent himself. Much admired by the public, though often disdained or ignored by the surf industry itself, Laird is a unique sports icon—an athlete who refuses to compete professionally yet has dominated big wave surfing as no one else has ever done. Mixing never-before-seen archival footage with contemporary scenes shot in Southern California, Bermuda and Kauai, Take Every Wave features thrilling, jaw-dropping footage of surfing on the biggest waves you’ve ever seen. Threaded throughout is a revealing, deeply personal interview with Laird as well as conversations with the family members, friends, collaborators and detractors who know him best. Take Every Wave provides an intimate, uncompromising look at a lifetime devoted to riding giant surf—and the price an athlete pays for greatness. With Gabrielle Reece. Directed by Academy Award nominee Rory Kennedy (Last Days in Vietnam).Art Cinema Showcase, All Seats $6 Show times and tickets for 11/4-9 will be available starting 10/31.
