World premiere of Keith Malloy’s bodysurfing film Come Hell Or High Water.
Mark Cunningham , Mike Stewart, Keith Malloy, Chris Kalima, Durdam Rocherolle and local, Patrice Chanzy, bodysurf the perfect Tahitian reef breaks for Keith Malloy's new film, including some crazy rides at Teahupoo, the crew pushing back the limits of what is rideable on a hollow wave.
ENCINITAS, CA- Woodshed Films, Patagonia and Nixon are proud to announce the world tour for Keith Malloy’s debut film project, Come Hell or High Water.
The film explores the history and progression of the sport of bodysurfing and the pureness that comes from riding a wave. Shot primary in 16mm, the film takes a unique look at the culture, beauty and simplicity of the sport, capturing the stories and locations of those who belong to this community.
While Malloy is most widely known for his time in the water as a surfer, his exploration into the world of bodysurfing began some 10 years ago when he wanted to reconnect with the ocean and did so through bodysurfing. Said Malloy about this project, “It’s about taking a breath and kicking your feet in the big blue sea.”
The world premiere of Come Hell or High Water will take place on September 17 at the New York Film Festival and the premiere tour will continue to crisscross across the globe with stops in Southern, Central and Northern California, North Carolina, London and more. A portion of the proceeds from the tour’s ticket sales will be donated to The Plastic Pollution Coalition, a global alliance aimed at working toward a world free of plastic pollution and its toxic impacts.
Come Hell or High Water will be available as a special edition DVD and digital download available from www.thesurfnetwork.com with an estimated release date of October 25, 2011.
