Gaza Surf Club
April 29, 2018 | 6:30pm
Olive Tree Restaurant
518 South Brookhurst Street #1, Anaheim

In the midst of rubble, debris, abandoned tanks, and bombed-out buildings, the Gaza Strip's 1.7 million denizens have no immediate means of escape. Surf culture has emerged as an outlet for down-trodden youth to experience a taste of freedom, strewn across 26 miles of Mediterranean coastline. With a rough-around-the-edges yet sincere approach to documentary form, filmmakers Philip Gnadt and Mickey Yamine introduce viewers to Gaza’s surfing subculture, with the endpoint directed at revealing the ever-burning formations of hope. Screened in the official selections of the 2016 Toronto and Dubai International Film Festivals.
