Dust we Return is a short film shot in collaboration with Deep Water Surf and Patagonia. The film features Patagonia athlete, Kohl Christensen. The artistic nature of this film tells a story of humanity's contemplation of what lies on the other side after death. Through the medium of big wave surfing, long dangerous hold downs, and training underwater running rocks, Dust We Return speaks to living a life of peace within the chaotic world in which we live.


This film was shot at a depth of 70ft. Kohl free dove and ran rocks exerting the massive amounts of energy required underwater. The production team scuba dived to capture all the shots.
