ETHER- a kind of breeze

Ether a kind of breeze - Berlin Commercial Film Festival - Official Selection Surf at Lisbon Film Fest - WINNER Best National Production VAEFF New York - Official Selection Booooooom Tv - Movie Premiere - A film by Les Diables Directed by: André Martins & Tiago Lemos This video has as starting point our desire of developing a movie that reveals surf in a different approach. Inspired by the concept of “butterfly effect” (expression of the chaos theory that describes how small variations in the initial conditions of large systems can affect later these systems), we created a narrative with two characters – a surfer and a dancer – whose actions affect each other. The dancer, impelled by the sea swell and the evolutions of the surfer in the ocean, gradually intensifies his movements. These, in turn, alter the strength and speed of the waves and consequently the surfer's movements. Our video displays this reciprocal and intensifying relationship between surfer, dancer and ocean.
