Given is the simple yet powerfully contemplative story of a unique family legacy come full circle. Told through the visceral experience of a 6 yr. old, Given follows legendary surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin from their island home of Kauai through 15 different countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations. Set in wave after wave of stunningly visual earthscapes, Given blooms into a tender yet stirring exploration of a young boy’s understanding of life through his familial bonds and their reverence for nature. Deeply moving, Given offers us the humbling contrast of a small voice voyaging through a big world as it finds its way home again.
Join us for the screening of Given and the launch of Lunamar for the Planet on Thursday, July 20 at 7PM at Surf the Greats. This event is a fundraiser for our Freshwater Fund and all proceeds from ticket sales go to the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper for swimmable, drinkable, fishable and surfeable waters.
As part of this event, we are excited to welcome Lunamar for the Planet to our shop. Lunamar's mission is to bring awareness through our passion and work for a better planet. They focus all of their love and energy into the creation of beautiful handmade pieces that contribute to programs related to ocean conservation, reforestation, endangered species protection, sustainable practice education, youth empowerment and more. They are also a platform for small non-profit organizations in Africa, Latin America and Asia who work directly with the communities and the wildlife that they support.
