PRESIDIO DIALOGUES – Thursday Evenings at 6 pm

Notable authors, artists, and conversation starters explore themes from ancient history to current events through interactive dialogues, stimulating talks, panels, performances, and films.

More than just three miles of heavy waves on Ocean Beach, the Great Highway is part of the early history of California surfing and beach life. This new documentary covers it all; from the Sutro Baths to the former six million-gallon saltwater Fleishhacker Pool, once lifeguarded by Olympians and big wave legends, to the champions of today. Winner of the 2016 Golden Gate International Ocean Film Festival Award (IOFF). (88 mins)

 Mark Gunson, filmmaker and co-producer, and Kristin Howell, co-producer will be in attendance for Q+A.

IOFF Executive Director Ana Blanco will moderate.

 In association with the International Ocean Film Festival, San Francisco.
