THE STRENGTH THAT COMES FROM GO­ING TO WA­TER, AUS­TRALIA, 52 MIN At­mos­phere takes prece­dence over adrenalin in this un­ortho­dox, yet al­lur­ing new Australian surf­ing doc­u­men­tary. Vet­eran film­maker Tay­lor Steele cer­tainly knows his way around the genre. How­ever, he is am­bi­tiously go­ing af­ter some­thing more last­ing here than just the in­stant rush of waves and wipe-outs. In­deed, what hap­pens away from the swells for elite in­ter­na­tional surfers is the pri­mary fo­cus of Prox­im­ity. Steele tracks the move­ments and charts the con­trast­ing ap­proaches to the surf­ing lifestyle of four pairs of big-wave riders. A calm­ing, con­tem­pla­tive ex­pe­ri­ence sure to be rel­ished by surf devo­tees.
