Kites

Poland / 2020 / documentary / 5' / National Competition

Kite surfers in the Hel Peninsula. The power of the element and people who can harness it with seemingly childlike carelessness. Breath-taking evolutions of professionals and first steps of novices. The passion which literally and figuratively lifts them into the air. The sport which is just weekend entertainment for some becomes a way of life for others.
