Wavelength is proud to be hosting the official UK tour of Heavy Water; an unflinching biopic, featuring the life and times of Nathan Fletcher.
Directed by Michael Oblowitz, (creator of the controversial unreleased ‘Sea of Darkness’) the film serves as an intimate portrait of the youngest son of surfing’s most influential dynasty.
For those unversed in the Fletcher family tree, Nathan’s grandfather, Walter Hoffman, was one of the world’s original big wave surfers. His father was Herbie Fletcher, tow surfing pioneer and his older brother, Christian Fletcher, was a seminal force in the rise of aerial surfing. Using the lives of this prolific surfing family as a lens, Oblowitz offers deep insight into the birth of modern surfing’s most influential movements and the groundbreaking events that followed.
From the deaths of close friends Sion Milosky and Andy Irons, to incredible rides during the iconic 2011 Cloudbreak and Teahupoo Code Red swells, Nathan has been a central figure in some of the most historic surfing events of last two decades. The film plots a course through each of them, offering a unique perspective that will leave audiences reconsidering stories they thought they knew.
More than just a biopic, Heavy Water rounds out with an intense helicopter acid-drop attempt that underlines the enduring theme of the film; Nathan’s desire to push the limits, regardless of the cost.
Join us for a showing near you to enjoy the film’s incredible visuals and booming soundscape as they were meant to be experienced.
