ANDY IRONS: KISSED BY GOD SCREENING

8PM : £12.50

The film documents the life of the three time world champion, through his era-defining career, to his struggle with bipolar and opioid addiction.

The intent of the film is to show the unfiltered life of Andy Irons, one that was filled with energy, passion, success, and challenges. Challenges that pushed Andy to the brink and were both the best parts of Andy and the hardest to handle. The filmmakers, Steve and Todd Jones, wanted to create a film that captured the true essence of Andy Irons – his family, his friends, and those who later realised a friendship that at times was hard to understand.

The film features in-depth interviews with Andy’s brother Bruce Irons, his wife Lyndie Irons, Joel Parkinson, Nathan Fletcher, Sunny Garcia, and Kelly Slater. Andy’s friends, family, and competitors share their stories of intimacy and fire with Andy Irons throughout the film. The unabashedly honest testimonials compel the story and reveal the very real side of Andy.

This is not a film about surfing; this is a film about a person that lived life to its fullest at the top of his industry, but did so facing insurmountable internal challenges. This story is about everything that made Andy Irons the man he was.

It opens with an insightful look at Andy’s childhood growing up in a blue collar neighbourhood in Hawaii before leading the viewer through his dramatic career accent, with all it’s euphoric highs and crushing lows and culminating in the heart-wrenching portrayal of the circumstances around his death.
