A T.S. Eliot Poem inspires a film about water and the ocean that is told by worlds legendary pioneer surfers. "At the still point of the turning world.... Where past and future are gathered.... Neither movement from nor towards .... Except for the point, the still point, There would be no dance, and there is only the dance."
The images from these words bring us to a place where there is everything and nothing, an image found in eastern thought and a concept found in quantum physics. Surf is a metaphor. The Still Point is a film about waves, surf and the connection of all things.
This is a thought provoking documentary about the ocean and waves as seen through the eyes and thoughts of some of the world’s most renown ‘water-men’. It’s about the sea, the connection of all things and is illuminated by beautiful cinematography and the insightful thoughts of surfing’s pioneering legends.
