"Highwater" Premiere Draws Kelly Slater, Tom Curren, "Wingnut"
Dana Point documentary filmmaker Dana Brown will not be the only person associated with the production attending the Orange County premiere of his latest film Highwater at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Regency Lido in Newport Beach.
Rich Wilson and Wes Brown, who were members of the production team for Highwater as well as previous Brown efforts Step Into Liquid and Dust to Glory, join the writer-director on stage for an audience Q&A.
Among the surfers captured by Highwater cameras scheduled to make special appearances at the screening are: Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Jesse Billauer, Mark Healy, Tom Curren, Robert "Wingnut" Weaver, Robert August and Pat O'Connel.
Curren, who has been a folksy blues singer-songwriter since he was about 15, is scheduled to perform before the movie starts.
Proceeds from the screening benefit the Newport Beach Film Festival. Go here for information on tickets, which are $15.
