Storyline

Can a region surrounded by land produce world class surfing waves? Internationally acclaimed surf-filmmaker, Jason Baffa (singlefin: yellow, one california day, one beach) documents surfer, artist and environmentalist, Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his Italian homeland on what most perceive as a 'Don Quixotian' quest but transforms into a modern discovery seeped in culture, tradition and passion. Moreover, it is what Chris finds in the beauty of Italy and the distinctly passionate connection the Italian people have with family and tradition that reveals a greater truth. Written by Anonymous

Incredible Journey
8 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though I don't surf a friend told me I must see this film. Its so, so much more about family, life and taking the time to really connect with your roots. It is so beautifully shot and can't wait to get my hands on the soundtrack.

Really enjoyed how the main character not only shared his personal journeys through out Italy but really gave us an insight into Italian food, wine and culture. The film really captured the persona of Italian people and their dedication to tradition. Its exposes of a vintner, Venice waterman, sculptor, surfboard shaper, knife maker and coffee roaster make me want to book a ticket now.

Bella Vita is beautiful indeed, a must watch!
