o SNEAK PREVIEW of "ONE WINTER STORY" | 8:30pm (15 minutes)

If you saw the sneak preview at our last event, this is a newly produced one!

One Winter Story, which is slated to be released in February 2006, is a rare glimpse into the adrenaline-pumped, male-dominated world of big wave surfing through the eyes of SARAH GERHARDT, a big-wave surf pioneer and scientist. This hour-long, experimentally shot film by San Francisco & Hawaiian filmmakers Sally Lundburg & Elizabeth Pepin takes viewers inside an overly hyped sport, exploring the nature of fear and desire through the experience of the first female to surf the monstrous waves at Mavericks.

One Winter Story is a personal documentary that follows Sarah from her difficult childhood filled with poverty and homelessness into adulthood where she achieves academic and athletic success. The film captures more than four years of surf sessions in the blistering wind, rain and fog on the Northern California Coast, and features spectacular surfing by both men and women, from Santa Cruz and Mavericks, to Hawaii's North Shore. | more at Frank Films.
