For forty years, underground filmmakers Greg Weaver and Spyder Wills documented surf discovery as it migrated around the globe, shooting timeless images for such films as "The Forgotten Island of Santosha," "Big Wednesday," "Pacific Vibrations," and "Uluwatu." A cinematic journey inspired by many of the reels that were lost in the making of these films, Chasing the Lotus is an in-depth look at surfing discovery. This fusion of rare super 8mm film, photo stills and contemporary interviews is narrated by Jeff Bridges.
