The surfing documentary will be available on Blu-ray in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Vinegar Syndrome and Etiquette Pictures says 'Hangs Upon Nothing' will hit Blu-ray on August 2.
Hangs Upon Nothing documents the lives of a group of surfers: Chuck Corbett who wandered his way to the remote atolls of Kiribati, brothers Mikala and Daniel Jones whose adventures take them to the far corners of the Indonesian archipelago, alongside a local crew of teenage surfers coming of age amongst the surf mecca of Bali. Their intertwined journeys are bound by an unending quest to find and ride perfect waves.
First-time filmmaker, Jeremy Rumas' Hangs Upon Nothing is as much a celebration of surfing as it is a stunningly beautiful exploration of mystical cultures where modern technology and millennia of history intersect. Shot entirely on 16mm film using a mechanical spring-wound Bolex, over the course of seven years, and featuring an ethereal original score by Rumas' band, Velo Sun, Hang Upon Nothing is a sensory journey of finding freedom in barreling waves.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Audio Commentary by Director Jeremy Rumas; "About Nothing" - Making of Featurette; "Surf Celluloid" - Technical Featurette; Multiple Trailers; Extensive Stills Gallery; and Quality Recycled Packaging & Slipcase.
