A terrific look into the lives of a black family constantly trying to prove its own worth in a society that expects more than it needs. ” Cinema Sight

An up-close look at one family’s emotional ups and downs, WAVES captures complicated dynamics with tenderness and grace & is one of the best films of the year.

Set against the vibrant landscape of South Florida, WAVES traces the epic emotional journey of a suburban African-American family—led by a well-intentioned but domineering father—as they navigate love, forgiveness and coming together in the aftermath of a loss.

From acclaimed director Trey Edward Shults, WAVES is a heartrending story about the universal capacity for compassion and growth even in the darkest of times.
