A Film by Edin Velez
The Naturist Education Foundation produced Chasing the Sun to introduce community leaders to naturists and their
values. More and more people are requesting a clothing-optional beach close to home. Naturists thus need contemporary tools to help legislators and business leaders understand why naturist settings on public lands
can serve local and regional interests.
Directed and filmed by acclaimed videographer and educator Edin Velez, Chasing the Sun: An Introduction to Naturism
is an 18-minute video made with non-naturist community leaders in mind. Without trying to convince anyone to try naturism themselves, Chasing the Sun
uses Velez's exquisite camerawork, national polls, interviews with naturists and non-naturist civic leaders, and simple, straightforward reasoning to make the case that a clothing-optional beach or park would be a valuable addition to most any community.
