Join us for a movie night this coming Thursday, 03/15 – 7pm at the Visual Arts Center in Newport, upstairs. A double feature, we’ll be screening Sofia, followed by Sliding Liberia.
Sofia is a one-hour documentary film that uncovers the spirit of surfer Sofia Mulanovich, the first female World Champion athlete from Peru. Sofia tells the story of how an unlikely heroine has inspired a new energy within her developing nation.
Sliding Libera is a film that crosses genres. Conceived of by Stanford filmaker Britton Cailouette and Stanford PhD student Nicholai Lidow, this surf film/social documentary follows a group of young surfers to Liberia in search of more than perfect waves. As they travel through the West African country, devastated by decades of brutal civil war, they record the stories of people they meet along the way.
