Fresh Water

2022 Best Documentary Program

Share on:

Fresh Water is the story of how a gay Brazilian surfer found his home on the frigid hidden waves of the North American Great Lakes. After fleeing the home where he was not accepted as himself, the trade off for Antonio was to lose surfing forever. Or so he thought. Everything changed the day he discovered a small group of diehards who surf winter wind swell on the Great Lakes. Through sleet, snow and rain, Antonio found new community and acceptance in the waters where he least expected.
