Given is the simple yet powerfully contemplative story of a unique family legacy come full circle. Told through the visceral experience of a 6 yr. old, Given follows legendary surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin from their island home of Kauai through 15 different countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations. Told from the perspective of their 6-year-old boy, it is a powerful, contemplative film.

The film is premiering at the Hawaii International Nov 12 and screening at Florida Surf Festival, Tallin Black Nights International, Kona Surf and Santa Barbara International festival and a theatrical premiere in New York, Sydney and Los Angeles will happen early next year.  

The film’s release will be accompanied by publication of “Given and the Big Fish,” a children’s picture book, as well as a soundtrack composed by Gregory Rogove featuring Devendra Banhart.
