MINDS IN THE WATER (USA, 2011, 85 min.) 

Washington, D.C. Premiere Follow the quest of professional surfer Dave “Rasta” Rastovich and his friends to help protect the ocean and its inhabitants. Witness his transition from ocean admirer to ocean activist as he embarks on a personal mission to help stop the worldwide commercial slaughter of dolphins and whales. The film captures the key moment in his life when apathy turns into activism and documents his five-year journey spanning the globe from Australia to the Galapagos to Tonga, Alaska and Japan. While unsure at first, Dave quickly finds his activist sea legs, building a core team of filmmakers, journalists, musicians, eco-pirates and celebrity surfers, such as Kelly Slater, Isabel Lucas, Louie Psihoyos, Paul Watson and even a professional mermaid, to spread the film’s message. Highlighting the power of one individual to make a difference, the film stresses that if ocean-minded people are to pass on a sustainable culture, they must become responsible stewards of their coastal environment. Directed by Justin Krumb. Produced by Dave Rastovich and Jonny Vasic. Soundtrack features Red Hot Chili Peppers and Jack Johnson. 

Introduced by Christiane Connors, Director of Service, Learning and Civic Engagement, Edmund Burke School. Colleague of Dave Rastovich and Award-Winning Film Producer Alec Pedersen will be available for a Q&A after the screening.
