august 30, 2010Lost Jewel of the Atlantic

Clayoquot Theatre
Monday, August 30, 2010 | 8 pm

Lost Jewel of the Atlantic
(US, 2007, Surf Doc, 54 min, Not Rated)
Directed by Jacob Holcomb

Weaving thrilling big-wave surfing footage with testimony from some of surfing's greatest personalities, Lost Jewel of the Atlantic chronicles one of the world's most significant surf discoveries in decades, and the subsequent battle to prevent its destruction from ill-conceived coastal development.

Discovered in the late 1970's by French surfer Gibus de Soultrait, the point break in Jardim do Mar remained a relative secret to all but a lucky few traveling surfers, who challenged the island's big surf until the late '90's without revealing its location to the surfing world. But the secrecy that surrounded it led to its ultimate demise, when the government of Madeira proposed building a massive seawall in this small seaside village. A short film will precede the main feature.

Shown in conjunction with Surfriders Foundation! Displays, guest speakers, panel discussion, and Draw Prizes!
