Saturday, March 8th is Ocean Night at Arcata Theatre Lounge featuring A Deeper Shade of Blue (2011) & Exploring Humboldt.
Master surf film maker Jack McCoy ventures into a new realm with his latest breakout feature, A DEEPER SHADE OF BLUE. This is not a surf movie, it is a film about surfing’s deepest roots: in the subconscious; in ancient lore; in the craft of surfboard building; in man’s perpetual quest for a joyful relationship with the natural world. In eleven interwoven chapters, today’s leading surfers are linked to those who came before, for a deeper appreciation of what it means to be a surfer and the soulful underlying power of modern surf culture. This is a big picture of a memorable story, beautifully told. It is a film about feeling good to be alive…and it will make you feel good.
Exploring Humboldt is a pilot episode produced by KEET Eureka and directed by Humboldt State University Alumni Acey Aseltine. Our hope for this project is to continue to produce new stories with the help and support of our local community. The program features segments on the Arcata Marsh, Trinidad bay, and the Lost Coast.
