THE MORE THINGS CHANGE - GERRY LOPEZ
Director: Nathan Myers
Gerry Lopez first surfed Uluwatu in 1974. The fabled Balinese wave was pristine, magical, and empty. Gerry returned to Uluwatu 40 years later to find it bustling, developed, and a different scene. After a week of surfing and yoga, however, Gerry tapped into a spirit of place that will endure.
FROM THE GOLDEN GATE TO THE FARALLONES
Directors: Jack Bushell* & Alex Herz
This short-form documentary film follows marathon swimmer Simon Dominguez as he becomes the first to attempt the treacherous 30-mile swim from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Farallon Islands, a small archipelago off the coast of San Francisco and home to one of the biggest Great White Shark breeding grounds in the world. Simon, a seasoned veteran and champion of both the English Channel and the length of Lake Tahoe, is ready for the challenge. See what it takes to push your body to the limit as he attempts the toughest marathon swim in the world.
THE OLD GOATS
Director: Erin Brethauer
"Everybody wants to be the 'old goat' - the head 'old goat.' And they will, one of these days." But for now, that title goes to Walt Schneebeli, who at 90 is the oldest member of the Dolphin club who is still swimming. He's been swimming the frigid waters around Aquatic Park since 1948, and he has no plan of stopping anytime soon. (no trailer available)
