LBSA and SMASH present “Under the Sun” on National Blvd Beach – Saturday Evening, Sept 8th, 2012!

Come out for another great surf movie night on the beach!






The City of Long Beach hosts the 2nd “surf movie on the beach” event at dusk on Saturday, September 8th on National Beach. “Under The Sun”, a film by Emmy award-winning director Cyrus Sutton will make its’ debut at this free public screening courtesy of SMASH (Surf /Movies/Art/Shaping/History) and in collaboration with the Long Beach Surfers Association, the Long Island Motion Picture Arts Center & Museum (with a grant from Legislator Denise Ford) and Artists in Partnership, Inc. 

The film is a documentary shot in Byron Bay and the Gold Coast, Australia and produced with support from Ubiquity Records. Often dark and subversive, this brilliant super 16mm film explores the roots of surfing commercialism while striking a compelling story through stunning surfing shots and never-before-seen 70’s footage. Starring: Dave Rastovich, Nat Young, Beau Young, Rabbit Bartholomew, and Dean Morrison. 

Bring your chairs and blankets.
