The Radicals World Premiere
Join us for the World Premier of Beyond Boarding’s highly anticipated film, The Radicals, a feature documentary that wraps the viewer in a unique meeting of extreme sports and frontline activism. A discussion will follow with filmmakers Tamo Campo, Brian Hockenstein and Indigenous frontline leaders of the film including Haida Weaver Meghann O'Brian, Professional Snowboarder Marie-France Roy, Dzawa'denuxw Chief Willie Moon, John Nole of the Klabona Keepers, Chief Ernest Alfred and Karissa Glendale of Namgis Nation.
The Radicals (2018, Canada, 75 min.) follows an active group of snowboarders and surfers who drift from their respective sports into the world of activism. Together they journey across the West Coast of British Colombia, weaving a story of learning, inspiration and resistance. From the Tahltan fight for the Iskut Headwaters, BC Hydro’s corruption in Xwísten, art as resilience on Haida Gwaii, to a coastal uprising against fish farms, each community teaches the athletes to understand what it means to be a true radical. Combining visually stunning sport photography and behind the scenes of frontlines, the film’s trajectory fulfills the athlete's quest for extreme landscapes while uncovering critical social issues and resistance.
