On Tuesday, November 7, the California Surf Museum will present a showing of Between the Lines, a powerful documentary about surfing and the war in Vietnam, at the Oceanside Library Community Rooms in downtown Oceanside. This is a special screening, held in conjunction with CSM’s current exhibit China Beach: Surfing During the Vietnam War and the Healing Power of Wave-riding. Narrated by John Milius (Big Wednesday, Apocalypse Now), the film tells the gritty story of two California surfers who chose different paths during the Vietnam conflict. Now, over 50 years later, the surfers’ revelations are as raw and honest as the film itself. Between the Lines won the Best Documentary Award at the 2009 X-Dance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Many of the documentary’s personalities will be in attendance, as well as producer/writers Ty Ponder, Scott Bass, and Troy Page. A Q&A session will be held before and after the showing. DVDs will be available for purchase.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and film starts at 7:00 p.m.
Suggested donation is $10 at the door.
