Portuguese Radical: Tomás Valente Looks Back In Anger

Like your surf clips Portuguese, politically engaged, and accompanied by an epigraph from celebrated space cadette and occasional surf philosopher Timothy Leary? ‘Le retour de l´enfant terrible’, a short film by Eduardo Pimentel and João Monge, starring the wave-riding talents of Tomás Valente, is the surf clip for you.

“Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities — the political, the religious, the educational authorities — who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing — forming in our minds — their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable open-mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.”
