The Los Angeles premiere of Thomas Campbell‘s new film, ‘The Present’, goes down tomorrow night – Tuesday, March 10th – as part of Cinema Tuesdays at Nike Sportswear at the Montalbán.
‘The Present’, the highly-anticipated new surf film by artist, photographer and filmmaker, Thomas Campbell, is a colorful and artistic exploration of the beautiful environment surfers play in everyday. Through his uniquely artistic style of filmmaking and intimate city-by-city screenings, Campbell hopes to help keep alive the nearly dead tradition of surfers gathering at a local theater to view a new independent surf film. Like his other films, ‘The Present’ covers several surfing sub-cultures, and he hand picks some of the sport’s most talented and creative individuals including Dave Rastovich, Dane Reynolds, Joel Tudor, Sofia Mulanovich, C.J. Nelson, Ry Craike, Devon Howard, Dan Malloy, Harrison Roach, Kassia Meador, Jacob Stuth, Chelsea Georgenson Hedges, Chris Del Moro, Michel Junod, Ian King, Danny Hess, Alex Knost, and Rob Machado and captures them riding waves in exotic locales around the world from West Africa, Australia and New Zealand to Hawaii, Sumatra and Java.
It all kicks off at 7pm at The Montalbán this Tuesday, March 10th with an opening reception and art exhibition, followed by an 8pm screening and Q&A with the filmmaker himself, Thomas Campbell.
