The Search For Freedom tells the story of the pioneers, the legends, the icons, the visionaries and the champions. It’s told through the eyes of a group of extreme sports experts who created a cultural phenomenon. Featuring legendary skateboarder, Tony Hawk, and multi-award winning surfer, Kelly Slater, who alongside their peers in the extreme sports world, have helped shape the action sports revolution we know today.
Written and directed by Jon Long (IMAX® Extreme), The Search For Freedom features some of the most outstanding cinematography ever shot of the extreme sport world led by the brightest pioneers, legends, visionaries and champions of surfing, snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding, mountain biking and more.
With insights from icons including Danny Way, considered by many to be the greatest skateboarder ever; Robbie Maddison, world record holder for the longest distance jump ever covered on a motorcycle (almost 400 feet); Bob McKnight, creator of Quiksilver, one of the biggest surfing brands in the world and Robby Naish, who shocked the world of Wind Surfing by winning his first World Championship aged just 13, this film is a unique glimpse into the human side of the world of extreme sports.
