BELLA VITA FILM from Bella Vita Film on Vimeo.

Born of mistral winds and witness to the birth of Western Civilization, the waves of the Italian coast have carried merchants, fishermen, travelers and kings. Preserved like a Roman ruin, the surf of the Italian coast now carries surfer, artist, and environmentalist Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his ancestral homeland to explore a culture where old-world-convention and traditional craftsmanship have matured into a modern surf lifestyle and destination.
Filmmaker Jason Baffa chronicles Chris and his friends Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lyndsey Hill, Conner & Parker Coffin and Italian stand-outs Alessandro Ponzanelli and Leonardo Fioravanti as they explore the burgeoning new surf culture blossoming among the Mediterranean’s oldest and cherished traditions.
A visual epic captured in stunning 35mm, Bella Vita is an intimate and powerful journey of self-discovery, seeped in culture, tradition, and passion- where family comes first.
Baffa’s filmmaking background and work as a commercial director & cameraman (Patagonia Clothing, Oakely, SPY Sunglasses, Ford Motors, Kashi) and reputation as a modern surf-genre innovator (Singlefin: yellow & OneCalifornia Day), fuel this documentary with an intimate and romantic perspective woven amongst an awe-inspiring travel pictorial. Producers include commercial heavyweights, Anh-Thu Le and Greg Schultz. Fall 2013 release.
This film is supported in part by JEEP & Castellani Wine
