FuckUp Nights 2014

FuckUp Nights 2014

In 2012 a few friends and really nice people from Mexico City started to organize events called FuckUp Nights. Basically, people share their stories about failure. Very honest stories. Very valuable stories. Because, you learn more from mistakes. And mistakes are part of business. Yes, important to develop experience. But more than that, mistakes prove the courage someone got to try new things.

For the last two years FuckUp Nights have been evolving in many cities around the globe. But this year probably has been the year of FuckUp Nights. Also, here in Germany are now many cities involved. After kicking-off FuckUp Nights Düsseldorf in April. Which was great fun to organize and being part of. Kick-ass!

The Old, the Young and the Sea

The European Surf Documentary von Mario Hainzl und Andreas Jaritz zeigt die vielfältige Surfkultur entlang der Atlantikküste von Frankreich, Spanien und Portugal. Als Roadmovie zeichnet “The Old, the Young and the Sea” ein Bild von den frühen Einflüssen zur modernen Pop-Industrie. Und von ganz vielfältigen Persönlichkeiten und Lebensentwürfen zur Naturverbundenheit und der Liebe zum Meer.

“The movie introduces the audience into a world of cultural diversity, surprising encounters and the search for the spirit of traveling.”

Am 08.04.2014 hat die erste Europäische Surf Doku im Bambi Kino, Düsseldorf Premiere.
