Who wouldn't want to take in the view above from a sailboat? But there is more to behold than beauty in the documentary Tide Lines, which packs an environmental message for viewers who see it free Thursday evening in Newport Beach.
The new, 100-minute documentary from Canada follows two brothers and a friend who set sail from Mexico with a dream of circumnavigating the world–and surfing along the way. But their three-year journey changes them because of the people they meet and beaches they visit, instilling a newfound sense of global community through the oceans. Is part of this due to the disgusting discovery of plastic refuse islands in our oceans? Indeed. Learn more about director Andrew Naysmith's movie at TideLinesFilm.com.
Sponsored by the Newport Beach Film Festival, Orange County Parks and Newport Bay Conservancy–and part of the festival's quarterly Environmental Film Series–the Tide Lines screening begins at 7 p.m. at Newport Aquatic Center, 1 White Cliffs Drive, Newport Beach. It's free and open to the public.
