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.
