October, 13-16, 2011

Featured films included the Allen Sarlo documentary Work to Surf and the Dogtown farce film, Day at the Pool.

Allen Sarlo, aka “The Wave Killer”, aka “The King of Mailbu”. Allen was surfing by age 6, at 14 he was surfing the infamous “Cove” at the POP pier. The film, “Dogtown, Z Boys” documented his adolescence and captured a celluloid preview of his athletically intense surfing style. In 1974, at 16 Allen took first place at the prestigious Malibu 4-A contest, to the chagrin of the older surfers. He tells his adventure as a surfer and the many contests he wins. The surf life style film “Work to Surf” is Allen’s latest adventure, it’s a bio documentary with a ‘feel good’ message. Allen is an active member of Surfrider Foundation, rallying over the years for cleaner water at Malibu’s “Surfrider Beach”.

A Day at the Pool is a documentary-style film that attempts to uncover the true origins of modern skateboarding. Interviews with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams and the rest of the Dogtown Crew reveal that an anonymous local kid may have been largely responsible for the skateboarding revolution that lead to their success in the late 70s.
