Set in the remote village of Yakutat, Alaska, “With the Tide” follows the youth of the Tlingit tribe as they further explore their relationship to the ocean, themselves, and the expanse of isolated wilderness they call home. Over the span of four years, this story documents the exploration of how surfing can increase health, wellness and value for nature in a community that is constantly facing layers of adversity and the challenges of geographic isolation.

Jury Quote

This film is touching and inspiring, but also FUN! It was an honour to bear witness to Indigenous children and youth in a remote northern community take to the water, surfboards in hand. The participants are authentic and compelling, the filmmakers sensitive and talented, and the resulting documentary clearly award-worthy.

– Tracey Friesen, VIMFF 2024 Jury
