The New York Times writes – “8 P.M. (EPIX) THE CURRENT (2014) The surfer Bethany Hamilton, who was 13 when she lost an arm in a shark attack; the Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin; and the wrestler Anthony Robles are featured in this documentary, directed by Kurt Miller, about the healing power of water sports. Jean-Michel Cousteau and his son, Fabien, narrate.”
