Heavy Water follows professional big wave surfer Nathan Fletcher through the evolution of surfing and his relationship with big waves, culminating in a spectacular, never- before-performed stunt, where Fletcher “acid drops” from a helicopter into a huge wave.
Featuring stories from fellow board-sports legends, including surfing luminaries Bruce Irons, Darrick “Double D” Doerner and Danny Fuller, about pursuing their passions, the documentary is an epic voyage through the eyes of the surfing community that delves deep into the mind-set of the board-sports culture and its roots.
Heavy Water comes to more than 350 U.S. movie theaters on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Produced by Red Bull Media House and All Edge Entertainment Heavy Water premiered at the Newport Beach Film Festival on April 26. The documentary was the winner of “Best Surf Film” at the Byron Bay International Film Festival in Australia and an official selection at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain, and the Wavescape Film Festival in Durban, South Africa.
The film features a score by Porno for Pyros’ Peter di Stefano and Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilk.
