I went to Blitz megaplex grand indo on Monday april 27th to see Mengejar Ombak (Chasing Wave) movie premiere. This movie directed by my friend Dave Arnold & his friend Tyrone Lebon. Winner of the ‘Best Emerging Filmmaker’ (for Dave Arnold and Tyrone Lebon) and the ‘Best Original Score’ Awards at the prestigious X-Dance Film Festival 2009, Utah, US. Wasnt that great? ;p
Its a documentary movie about a young talented indonesian surfer, Dede Suryana from Cimaja, a small fishing village in South-West Java. The film follows Dede as he embarks on his first serious season on the World Qualifying Series (WQS) – where he has been touted to become the first Asian to qualify for the World Championship Tour (WCT).
This movie really entertaining and funny. There was a scene when dede’s parents told a story about dede’s childhoods in a very thick sundanees accent. So hilarious ;D
So many aspects you can get from this movie. I hope this movie could encourage others young talented indonesian and follow his path.
I suggest you all to see it :D
Screening at Blitz, Grand Indonesia from May 6 & Paris Van Java from May 13.
