Thursday 7pm Patagonia HQ, Ventura CA –
Last night, surfers and watermen from all over the Ventura County region congregated together for professional surfer, world traveler, and filmmaker Keith Malloy’s new film Fishpeople.
A little bit about the film:
To some, the ocean is a fearsome and dangerous place. But to others, it’s a limitless world of fun, freedom and opportunity where life can be lived to the full. A documentary presented by Patagonia and directed by Keith Malloy, Fishpeople tells the stories of a unique cast of characters who have dedicated their lives to the sea. From surfers and spearfishers to a long-distance swimmer, a former coal miner and a group of at-risk kids on the streets of San Francisco, it’s a film about the transformative effects of time spent in the ocean—and leaving behind our limitations to find deeper meaning in the saltwater wilderness that lies just beyond the shore.
Once the outdoor screening was over, Keith Malloy and Kimi Werner hosted a Q&A session about the film. The remainder of the night was filled with chatter of the ocean, catered food, and raffle prizes.
