We are proud to announce our 59th printed issue edition around Jason Baffa’s new surf film titled; Bella Vita. The film chronicles surfer, environmentalist and artist, Chris Del Moro on a pilgrimage back to his homeland of Italy along with friends and fellow surfers, revealing all the beauty of the country and of life that they encounter on the way.
For the first time in our long publishing history, we are going to produce an issue edition to coincide with the release of a film. The Arkitip issue edition will celebrate the beauty of this film in print as well as revealing the back story of how it came about. Along with featuring some of Del Moro’s art, we will delve into behind the scenes photography in the making of the film to tell the story. To aid the telling of this story, visuals will include exclusive storyboards, sketches, unseen video stills, and essays by the creatives behind this unique production.
