Five Summer Stories

Heralded as the finest surf movie ever made, "Five Summer Stories" is a cultural icon, a time capsule from a watershed era when the world was at a critical crossroads and its reflection was clear in the emerging sport/art of surfing.

Against a backdrop of the Vietnam War and the Nixon years, "Five Summer Stories" was the culmination of the joint surf-film careers of Jim Freeman and Greg MacGillivray.

Code named "The Last Surfing Movie" during production, the movie portrays a young, outlaw sport at a strategic point in its creative evolution - and at an historic crux in time.

Now you, too, can do what audiences of the 1970s did - you hoot and scream and go crazy - all in the privacy of your own home.
