The 77 Year Old Kite Surfer
This is the first in a series of three short films by James Callum and Alex Knowles, in partnership with Prime & Fire Selects, Talenthouse and BFI Future Film.
David is a 77 year old kitesurfer who absolutely defies the stereotypical view of a pensioner. After the unexpected and tragic loss of his wife, David makes the decision to live every moment to the fullest, and through this finds solace in kitesurfing. This is the story of David, and how life on the water has given him a much needed escape and feeling of freedom when needed most.
Prime & Fire Selects, in association with Factory Media, is an annual film competition giving up-and-coming filmmakers the funds and support to create short human-interest documentaries within the realms of action sports.
