Part I of Donsflicks Double Feature – Paradise: No Limits. (Taylor Camp is showing at 3:30pm.)
SOMBRIO is a an hour long documentary about the eviction of a diverse community of surfers and squatters that existed on the West Coast of Vancouver Island for more than thirty years. It centers on a family with ten children who grew up surfing on the beach and captures them and other residents over a two-year period, revealing their personal stories and convictions as they come to terms with their impending eviction. Sombrio presents a portrait of a vital subculture in BC’s history and challenges our notions of what it means to be a self-determined citizen.
Intro and questions answered by filmmaker Paul Manly.
Doors open at 1:45pm.
