Michael, who uses a wheelchair on the ground, finds freedom in surfing

Michael is disabled and uses a wheelchair to go about his daily life in California. But it’s on the ocean atop his custom surfboard that he feels most free and lucid – a sensation he describes as his ‘birthright’. Sean Mullens’s modest yet moving film chronicles his friend Michael as he goes about his everyday surfing ritual, and explores the essential human desire to transcend limitations.

Director: Sean Mullens
