This offering was filmed over FIVE consecutive summers from 1957 to 1961. It follows the Robbins family as they attempt to roadtrip in their station wagon around every US state.

North of the Sun – certificate PG, 46mins (2013) Norwegian with English subtitles.
A multi-award winning film by two Norwegian surfers who spend a winter camping on a secret bay hidden in the arctic circle.

Using nothing but their humour and a few tools they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore, and ate expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away. But the boys brought with them two items of utmost importance: Their surfboards – perhaps their biggest motivation for the arctic adventure. Because the remote bay holds a well kept secret; some of the worlds finest surfing waves…
