BUNKER77 (DIRECTED, PRODUCED & WRITTEN BY: TAKUJI MASUDA)
(JOCK DOCS/ NYC PREMIERE)
Starring: Laird Hamilton, Tony Alva, Johnny Knoxville, Ellie Silva, Rory Russell, Kenneth Anger, Spyder Wills, C.R.Stecyk III, Art Brewer.
Bunker77 is the wild true story of a young American rebel seeking freedom, love, and authenticity in a chaotic world. Bunker Spreckels, Clark Gable's stepson and heir to a sugar fortune, defied expectations and grew into a controversial surf star from the late 60s into the 70s. He pushed surfing’s boundaries by riding very short boards in Hawaii’s most critical waves as well as during a pioneering trip to South Africa’s J-Bay.
While Bunker mentored skateboard legend Tony Alva to his world championship and dove into collaborations with film auteur Kenneth Anger, his mysterious and surreal persona blazed to legendary proportions, with an influence that is still felt to this day.
