On the heels of Maverick's opening ceremony Sun Nov 1, Powerlines Productions invites you to their film screening & DVD release party of "Ride On," a progressive big-wave surf documentary that brings you into the minds and lives of surfers as they search for the largest rideable waves in the Pacific.  Happy bar menu all night long, plus $4 Peruvian beers, $4 bottled beers, $5 pisco sours.

Produced by Curt Myers, Chris Wilson and Eric Nelson, "Ride On" documents the arrival of the deadliest swell in decades, as surfers are left with a decision: surf Mavericks, with waves that many have compared to "100-Foot Wednesday", or Pescadero Point (aka Ghost Tree), a spot that now faces a ban on tow-in surfing on its biggest days. The film also includes footage from the fabled Nov. 29-30 swell that elite surfers are calling "the best paddle swell at Mavericks." Includes footage of Alaska’s glacier produced waves, beach-break perfection in Mexico,  Puerto Escondido’s historic monster swell at and the worst wipeout ever witnessed at Mavericks. Featured surfers include many of the regular Mavericks crew.

The Mighty Slim Pickins...are an SF-based self-proclaimed "what-the-f*!@k-abilly" band. Blending vintage country, rockabilly and punk, this all-female outfit is a little bit heartache, a little bit hardcore and a whole lotta camp....The Meat Sluts - Time to punk'n' roll with members of the Womentors, Double D's, Lost Puppy and EX-members of Loudmouths, McCools, among others... and The Aquamen are best described as a crew who "staggers around stage in suits, striking metal poses, yowling in staccato outbursts. The band's unique blend of spastic surf "intoxica" channels the spirits of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Man ... or Astroman? and Dean Martin in a boozy seance." --San Jose Metro

Salon.com interview with the filmmakers.
 
o "Lost Prophets"
a new surf film with Dave Rastovich, Hans Hagen, Chris Del Moro & Reef Macintosh. "
Lost Prophets-Search for the Collective" is an adventure documentary that follows nine surfers in different aspects of life, from a renegade canyon dweller to devout West Javanese Muslim.  Narrated by legendary oddball Tom Morey, the film delves into different aspects of surfing, all the while centered around the Indonesia surf escape.  Some people live life asleep, only dreaming their awake. Amongst the unstoppable trend of surf globalization there are certain individuals who have found a way of waking up. The film portrays a vivid picture of lives intertwined by adventure, balance, dedication and connection and thus, bridging generations.
 
o "All Points South"
Best Short Film Award Winner, New York Surf  Film Festival; this surf-activism film by Save The Waves' Josh Berry and filmmaker Sachi Cunningham exposes Southern Chile's pulp mill pollution problem, how surfers and fishermen are fighting against the forestry industry. 
 
o  "Devils Teeth"

Ron Elliot, the only urchin diver to frequent the Great White Shark-infested waters of the Farallon Islands.

Screening times TBD.  "This devastating and highly engaging documentary about the ‘dolphin trade’  by one-time dolphin trainer Ric O'Barry and former National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyo has played to standing ovations at Sundance and is likely to change what you think about humanity's relationship to the oceans. Beautifully photographed and highly entertaining as it is, "The Cove" is also one of the most wrenching movies you'll ever see. It raises troubling questions about how badly we have befouled the 70 percent of our planet that's covered with water, and about why we have treated the species closest to us in intelligence with such cruelty and contempt.”

This evening features an acoustic set with Machado and Jon Swift, a full-length showing of the film and a Q&A with Rob and Taylor Steele!

Surf icon Rob Machado is the central focus of acclaimed surf filmmaker Taylor Steele’s latest movie. Steele captures Machado’s soul-searching journeys through the Indonesian islands. Winner of "Best Film" at Bali's Ombak International Surf Film Festival earlier this fall, much of the dialogue in The Drifter is taken from Machado's own personal journals. According to respected surf journalist Nathan Myers, who co-wrote the movie, there is nothing embellished in Machado's candid, heart-felt passages. It is these passages, in fact, that drive the movie, from Machado's epiphany in Bali, to his ill-fated motorcycle purchase, to his decision to delay his return to California, blindly pick a new island on the map, and just go. Jakarta Post said it well: "Capturing the journey of the surfer through a different land, culture and waves, The Drifter is a visual metaphor for a free spirit's conscious abandonment of the worldly traps of modern life as he searches for the inner freedom and spiritual joy offered by a life of renunciation."  This is a Poor Specimen production.
