Heralded as "the finest surf movie ever made" Five Summer Stories is a cultural icon, a time capsule from a watershed era when the world was at a critical crossroads and its reflection was clear in the emerging sport/art of surfing. Against a backdrop of the Vietnam War and the Nixon years, Five Summer Stories was the culmination of the joint surf-film careers of Jim Freeman and Greg MacGillivray.
Code name 'The Last Surfing Movie' during production, the movie portrays a young, outlaw sport at a strategic point in its creative evolution--and at a historical crux in time. Now you too can do what audiences of the 1970s did - hoot and scream and go crazy.
