I just watched the trailer to the ladeez surfer movie Dear and Yonder and I have to say, I feel like I just came from a great yoga class. The trailer is like one deep, cleansing inhale. The music, by Vetiver is equally trancelike, calming, refreshing, and bright. In one clip, a surfer dives deep under the surface of the ocean with her board at her stomach with the ease of a porpoise. In another clip, a surfer dances back and forth on her board as she rides a wave, tiptoeing forward and back, testing her balance. All I have to say is that if the film lives up to the trailer, it’s going to be marvelous!
Dear and Yonder is a surf movie created by Tiffany Campbell and Andria Lessler, featuring a long cast of talented female surfers and their deep rooted connections to the ocean. From professional surfers Stephanie Gilmore, Sally Fitzgibbons, Coco Ho, Silvana Lima, and Sofia Mulanovich in the green caves of Indonesia to Kassia Meador, Ashely Davis and Prue Jeffries in the seaglass sea of Mexico, this film traverses the world, but resonates with a message of finding a personal sense of place and peace. As of now, Dear and Yonder has only a handful of stops on its tour listed here , so until hype spreads the ocean odyssey to a theater near you, postpone the tidal wave with an interview with the filmmakers . ~Hannah
