The Lighthouse International Film Society presents the screening of –Under An Arctic Sky- It is a beautifully filmed adventure documentary about a group of surfers who journey to Iceland’s north coast in search of perfect waves during the largest storm in 25 years.  The film follows six surders along with adventure photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland as they seek out unknown swell in the remote fjords of Iceland’s Hornstrandir Nature Reserve.

Six surfers set sail along the frozen shores of Iceland, knowing that the worst storm to hit the country in twenty-five years is about to arrive.  Enduring constant darkness and stormy seas they discover perfect waves and make history of surfing under the northern lights.

Chris Burkard’s visionary perspective has earned him opportunities to work on global, prominent campaigns with Fortune 500 clients, speak on the TED station, design product lines,teach, and publish a collection of books, including a children’s book.  Along with his team, Burkard is based out of his full-scale production studio and art gallery on the Central Coast-Pismo Beach, California.

A beautiful film that you can see at Surf N’ Paddle, Beach Haven NJ – 7:00PM- Saturday November 25th.

The 10th Anniversary of The Lighthouse International Film Festival will be June 7-10,2018. Mark your calendars and check us out.
