Irish surf documentary film Sea Fever has won the award for Best Cameraman at the 7th Krasnogorski Sports Film Festival in Moscow. Seventy-nine films from twenty different countries were shown at the festival and the award was graciously accepted by Irish Ambassador to Russia Mr. Justin Harman on behalf of Ken O’Sullivan.
Sea Fever is an insight film into the surf culture that has developed in Ireland over the last forty years. From dramatic footage of Ireland’s giant waves ‘Aileens’ (Aill na Searrach) at the 700ft Cliffs of Moher to interviews with the surfers that brave these waves to Kevin Cavey and the early pioneers of the ’60s and ’70s with their rudimentary equipment and spirit of adventure, Sea Fever sets out to capture the character and craic of Irish surfing. Sea Fever is Ken O’Sullivan’s first production and was produced without funding.
