MINDS IN THE WATER
Justin Krumb, USA, 2011, 90 min.
5 years in the making, this beautiful documentary chronicles professional surfer Dave “Rasta” Rastovich’s path to protect dolphins, whales and their ocean environment. Rasta’s latest campaign – a 660km sailing expedition along Australia’s Gold Coast – provides the backdrop for this evolution. His quest to gather support from professional surfers, seek guidance from Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson, and visit with California’s first coastal tribe, leads to a showdown in Taiji, Japan, made notorious in The Cove. www.mindsinthewater.com
Screening followed by discussion and Q&A with Mark Palmer, Associate Director, and Laura Bridgeman, Program Associate, with Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project.
