About the Film:
Part of the Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2017
Directed by Mark Gunson. USA. 2017. 90 min.
Great Highway traces the roots of Bay Area surfing from past to present and explores the changes that time reveals. The history is told by those who live it, from the lifeguards at Fleishhacker Swimming Pool in the 1940’s to kids growing up surfing today.
For more than sixty years people have surfed the San Francisco Bay Area far from the limelight reserved for the Southern California surf culture. Much like the city of San Francisco, the surf culture of Northern California is full of character, offering its own perspectives on the history and the future of surfing.
Special guest: Director Mark Gunson will give a post-screening talk at both screenings.
