Bella Vita follows Chris Del Moro as he surfs and explores the rich history and coastlines of Italy. Not only is the film gorgeous to look at it(shot on 35mm), it offers an unique geographical perspective on how surfing is a reflection of its local culture and vice versa. We're always enamored by the role surfing has on a culture and people. What's striking is not the differences in language or customs but the similarity of values: friends, family, and passionate living.
Bella Vita recently premiered at the San Sebastián Film Festival. More information here
