chasingdoraAlso highlighting this year’s Festival will be a special showing of Chasing Dora,written and directed by Thomas Joseph Barrack III and Wes Brown, at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego’s Balboa Park on Thursday, August 21.

Chasing Dora tells the story of three California surfers who decide to bring to life an epic challenge thrown down by one of surfing’s greatest stylists, the renowned maverick, Miki Dora, who died in 2002 at age 67.

They traveled to Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, to put on a contest using one of Dora’s radical ideas: the ultimate test of a truly great surfer would be in a contest for the longest wave ridden, on a self-made wooden board, with no equipment or accessories that stemmed
industrial age – no plastics, no neoprene suits, no surf leashes.
