GALLERY 21: Men's Health - Surfer, Artist

Two true stories revealing how two very different men have struggled against adversity. One, an elderly surfing legend, given only three months to live, throws himself into his sport and refuses to let his cancer stop his life. The other, a young artist, grapples with childhood disadvantages from his township home and shows how his experiences have influenced his work. Fitzgerald's beautiful black and white footage and use of voiceover creates a compelling and thought-provoking message.
