Cmon, lets go surfin now, everybodys learnin how, come to the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival with me
In spite of our beachfront proximity, hardcore surf fiends are quick to tell you South Florida waves dont cut it this part of the Atlantic is more tranquil than hang ten-able. But that didnt stop FLIFF from diving right into an acclaimed documentary about a group of California kids aspiring to become professional surfings next Big Kahunas. Chasing the Dream (narrated by noted Hollywood loose-cannon Gary Busey) gleams insight into the daily lives of eight serious surfers as they seek out the perfect wave. It also features interviews with some of the all-time greats, like Kelly Slater and Mark Richards.
Catch the dream on Wednesday at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale). Showtimes are 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Tickets cost $10. Call 954-760-9898, or visit www.fliff.com.
