93 – Letters from Marge
Surfing Pioneer and icon, Marge Calhoun shares memories and reflects on her long life, in handwritten letters to a friend. The film chronicles stories from her adventurous life that began in a little Hollywood cottage to her last days while sitting in her home next to a “picture window” with views to the sea and Morro Bay, CA. Though age had taken a toll on her body, Marge’s mind was sharp and could take her anywhere she wanted to go! This sweet and personal film shines a light on the life of the 1958 Makaha International Surfing Champion, an inspiring woman who lived life to the fullest. She loved the ocean, surfing and especially BIG waves! Her glass was half full, not empty. She offers words of encouragement and expresses a joy of life and the fact that one is never too old to enjoy the ocean and as Marge says, “the gifts from the powers that be.” Audience Choice Best Feature – Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2020.Official Selections 2020: San Diego Surf Film Festival, San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.
