A LIFE OF ENDLESS SUMMERS | THE BRUCE BROWN STORY
Postponed from our 2020 festival due to COVID 19, CIFF is beyond excited to screen this film. Join us on the beach at the Hotel Del for this special engagement screening, an exclusive retrospective documentary on Bruce Brown’s life told by one who knew him best, his son, Dana Brown. It’s a story of a man, a father, a husband, a filmmaker, a pioneer.
While mainly known for the film Endless Summer, Bruce Brown earned an Oscar nomination for On Any Sunday the trailblazing Motor Cross documentary starring Steve McQueen. The film is often credited as the best and/or most important motorcycle documentary ever made. Taking “action sports” films to the big screen had never been done prior to Brown, and the immersive world of capturing sports on film has never been the same!
