Three brothers set out on a very special trip together. Motivated by the classic surfer’s relentless quest for the perfect wave, they travel to the remote Norwegian island of Bjørnøya. Lugging a surfboard, snowboard, paraglider and various other equipment they transform the challenging nature of Bjørnøya into their own playground. The brothers find their ice-cold waves and precipitous slopes, and we get the chance to join in on the excitement of shredding arctic snow and cruising the ice cold waves.
Meet the Wegge-brothers at the screenings September 24. and September 27.
