Savage Waters

1h 33m Adventure, History 2022

A 19th-century treasure-hunters journal inspires a modern-day adventure. Not a hunt for gold, but to seek out and surf a mythical, never-ridden wave in some of the most remote and dangerous waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

For renowned skipper, Matt Knight, sailing to unpredictable and uncharted regions is impossible to resist. As a lifelong thrill-seeker, he is constantly testing the limits of what’s possible, something world-class big wave surfer Andrew Cotton has also built his career on.

With family and friends, they board the beautiful catamaran Hecate and follow clues to this ‘perfect wave’, but not everything goes to plan, with serious injury and life-threatening challenges testing the crew’s resilience and attitudes towards risk.

Narrated by the legendary Charles Dance, the film boasts jaw-dropping cinematography and follows remarkable protagonists, for whom living life to the full often means putting themselves in harm’s way.
