THE PRICE OF FREE

5:30pm
Crystal Theatre  

 

From producers Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, He Named Me Malala), Sarah Anthony, and rising director Derek Doneen comes The Price of Free, a sus-penseful yet intimate look at one man’s groundbreaking crusade to liberate every child possible. Kailash Satyarthi’s kinetic journey through secret raids and quests for missing kids shows how refusing to accept an unacceptable status quo can create sweeping change. Gripping as it is, the film is also the story of spirited children who, released from a nightmare, latch onto a second chance for joy with all they’ve got. It is the rescued kids who prove the absolute necessity of what Satyarthi does: giving hope to the world one child at a time.

MOMENTUM GENERATION

7:30pm
Crystal Theatre

 

Momentum Generation is a feature-length documentary about the deep friendships that were formed and tested among surfing’s most legendary crew, including Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Shane Dorian, Taylor Knox, Benji Weatherley, Kalani Robb, Ross Williams, and Pat O’Connell. After leaving their families in their early teens to live crammed together in a house on the North Shore of Oahu, they courageously followed each other into Mother Nature’s most dangerous waves … and when some of them didn’t make it back to shore, together they found a way to mourn and adapt. Fueled by camaraderie—but even more by a deep-seated competitiveness—this tight-knit crew became known as the “Momentum Generation” after being featured in Taylor Steele’s groundbreaking surf films. They went on to win world titles, break records, and redefine the world’s perception of the surfer, of youth culture, and of what it means to be free. (USA, 2018) 1HR 43MIN
