Overview

If Wes Anderson were inspired to make a surf film, it might look like The Fortune Wild. Borrowing from Anderson’s signature style, director Ben Gulliver creates a witty and light-hearted film about a beautiful wild area — Haida Gwaii, a chain of wave-swept, lushly forested islands off the British Columbia mainland. Surfing, camping and foraging for food on the unspoiled beaches, three surfers step away from the modern world and into a quieter — and quirkier — existence that is both more attuned and self-sufficient.
