The Church of the Open Sky

"The Church of the Open Sky" is an artistic portrait of surfing from Australian filmmaker Nathan Oldfield.

It's a ritual of tenderness, joy, and love, inspired by the core values and the essence of surfing.

Surfer-poets Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lindsey Hill, Tom Wegener, Belinda Baggs, CJ Nelson, Alex Knost, Johnny Abegg, Neal Purchase Jr, Jasson Salisbury, Devon Howard and many others are responsible for drawing their lines on the water.

In "The Church of the Open Sky," light is a constant presence, as the camera lens captures sacred rides in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka.

Oldfield's previous movies include "Seaworthy," "The Heart and The Sea," and "Gathering."
