World premiere of 'Bending Colours' hits Santa Cruz and Red Bull TV | française

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 November, 2012 : - - The long-awaited surf film, Bending Colours, has arrived. Red Bull Media House, in association with Kai Neville Studio and O' Neill, will premiere their latest cinematic creation about Jordy Smith at the Del Mar Theatre, in Santa Cruz, on November 5, 2012. Tickets will be on-sale at the door. For fans unable to make the trip to Santa Cruz, all the action from Bending Colours will be live-streamed for free at beginning at 8:00PM PST or pre-order the film today on iTunes.

Witness interviews with Jordy and other athletes, filmmakers and special guests on the red carpet, follow the cameras inside with the crowd to catch the introductions and watch the film live as it premieres to the world. If viewers miss any of the excitement, the entire live stream loop will be broadcasted continuously for 24 hours.

Just around the corner from the O' Neill Cold Water Classic, an ASP World Tour Stop, Jordy Smith will be joined on the Red Carpet by fellow surf stars such as Julian Wilson, John John Florence, Josh Kerr and Tom Curren. Bending Colours follows a year long free surfing journey with Jordy Smith and documents his progression from teenage prodigy to one of the world's best surfers. The 24-year-old combines ultra-progressive style with a competitive savvy beyond his years. This combination leaves us with only one conclusion, and that is that it is only a matter of time before he becomes world champion.

"I wanted to document the free surfing of Jordy, from the early years to today. How he's grown as a surfer", says director Kai Neville who has earned himself the reputation of being a visionary in the genre of surf documentary. State-of-the-art camera equipment and original direction allow the viewer to experience surfing closer than ever before. Futuristic maneuvers are slowed down to reveal every flex of board, body and manipulation of water molecule in the minutest detail. Bending Colours redefines the parameters of surf movies with Jordy, along with a cast of the best surfers, pushing the limits of high-performance surfing.

Filmed in exotic locations such as South Africa, La Réunion, Hawaii and Indonesia, the film takes the viewer on an unparalleled cinematic trip showing the beauty, power and soul of surfing at its best. Watch Bending Colours on and tune in on November 5 beginning at 8:00PM PST for the 24 hours on demand free live stream!
