Rio Breaks isn’t another surf film.
It’s a story – about friendship and survival, surfing and life
‘Gentle, touching and beautifully captured, this is the best surfing documentary since Riding Giants’ ****
‘A beautifully bittersweet vision of growing pains on the rough side of Rio. Outstanding work.’
Little White Lies
‘A true story and an inspiring film. I started surfing with these guys when I was only 14. Their drive and positive attitude had a profound effect on me as a surfer. I believe in what they are trying to do - much like they believed in me when I was starting out as a surfer.’
Maya Gabeira, Big-Wave Surfer
Life in the notorious favelas in Rio de Janeiro is tough, with its immense poverty, drug crime and violence on every corner, but if you look out over the horizon you are met with views of some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, replete with the stunning ocean perfect for surfing.
RIO BREAKS is the moving feature documentary that follows the story of two best friends as they try to escape the pitfalls of life in the slums by riding the waves on their favourite beach.
RIO BREAKS is directed by Justin Mitchell and is released in cinemas on 3 June 2011 from Mr Bongo Films.
