Entertaining the Eco Idea with "Out There"

Out There

Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Gore aren’t the only ones bringing environmental causes to the big screen. Teton Gravity Research—an action sports filmmaker based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming—in conjunction with The Surfrider Foundation recently released Out There, a 16mm HiDef surf film highlighting some of the sport’s best athletes riding some of the world’s most threatened waves. From Chile to Tahiti to Trestles in Southern California, Out There rocks a beachy sound track while taking the viewer from crest to coast with such names as Ian Walsh, Donavan Frankenreiter and Greg Long. The athletes take a look at humankind’s impact on some of their favorite spots as they raise awareness, advocate environmental protection, and encourage positive action in the name of our oceans.
