Oscar-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger travels the globe with legendary windsurfer and pioneering waterman Robby Naish, a 24-time world champion whose quest to master the world’s longest waves unexpectedly reveals his vulnerabilities as a competitor, mentor and father. THE LONGEST WAVE transcends the action sports genre by capturing obstacles outside of the legendary athlete’s professional life in an intimate, cinéma-vérité style, revealing Naish balancing the pursuit of excellence at sea with the demands of life’s complications on land.
Joe Berlinger has been a leading voice in nonfiction film and television for over two decades. Films include the landmark documentaries BROTHER'S KEEPER, the PARADISE LOST Trilogy, which helped lead to the release of the wrongfully convicted West Memphis Three, as well as the Sundance-premiering psychological thriller EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE, which recently debuted on Netflix.
