“The Search for Freedom” is more than an action sports documentary. The movie by Jon Long is almost a philosophical essay on what makes someone feel alive.
The planet’s brightest surfers, windsurfers, skateboarders, snowboarders, skiers, and mountain bikers will tell what it’s like to explore the infinite possibilities of self-expression. Their state of grace.
“Somehow, every time you do it, at whatever level, it somehow manages to free you from a lot of the things in life that are gonna try and sink you. It somehow allows you to leave all that behind for maybe just a moment—but sometimes that moment’s enough,” notes surf legend Gerry Lopez.
