Short Film Feature | PRIMITIVE

Introducing the local film production of PRIMITIVE by Benoit Lalande; featuring LBLR sponsored surfer and Olympic hopeful, Kalum Bruhwiler.

Gisele Bruhwiler moved to Tofino when the now renowned Canadian surf town was nothing more than a small fishing village. Since then, she has raised an entire family of pro-surfers, but did so the old way, showing them how to sail and live off the land. Despite speaking a different language and being generations apart, Gisele and her grandson Kalum share an unconditional love for the ocean and this primitive lifestyle that's been lost with changing times.
