Join CSFF as we co-present THE JOY OF WATER at this year's Water Docs Film Festival on Saturday, April 1st at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema at 3:00PM.
THE JOY OF WATER is double feature matinee including screenings of Standing on Water (2015), Snowglobe (2015), and Hand.Line.Cod.
Standing on Water is a parable about facing fears and following passion. It tells the story of Casper Steinfath, who, despite his dread of water, becomes one of the best stand-up paddle surfers in the world. The film demonstrates how far love of sport can take you in life, even if you have grown up in a small, isolated fishing village in northern Denmark, where “people didn’t play in the water . . . because you had this fear that something all of a sudden would pull you down.”
Strong family bonds, camaraderie and the birth of a Danish surf community in what today is known as ‘Cold Hawaii’ set the stage for this meditative portrait of a life lived for the ever-changing ocean.
