I'm more excited to see this surf movie than any other recently. Groundswell: A Small Film About Making A Big Stand is playing at 7:00 at Patagonia Portland on this Thursday, November 8th. There will be beer, live music, the movie, and a Q&A with Chris Malloy and Raincoast. The address is 721 NW 9th Ave.
Here is the info about the film:
"At great environmental risk, and against the wishes of most British Columbians and aboriginal people, the Enbridge Northern Gateway project would pipe tar sands oil from Alberta to the coast of British Columbia for delivery to markets in Asia and California. Last fall, Raincoast Conservation Foundation teamed up with filmmaker/Patagonia surf ambassador Chris Malloy to highlight all that's at stake. Chris' short documentary charts an extraordinary surf trip along BC's unspoiled coast with surfers acting as ambassadors for marine life. Through their remarkable experiences, and compelling narrative by young indigenous leaders, the film provides a fresh voice to a coast in peril."
It will definitely be a great event, and you won't want to miss it.
