Over the weekend, 40,000 – 50,000 Chileans demonstrated in the streets of Santiago, showing their disapproval of the government’s decision immediately before Pinera’s State of the Union address. Citizens have gathered together in every major city across Chile to peacefully urge their government to develop sustainable and responsible renewable energy, instead of mega dams and immense transmission lines. Across the world, defenders of wild Patagonia have shown their support, demonstrating everywhere from the Eiffel Tower to Mexico City. In this chapter of the long struggle against HidroAysen, the anti-dams movement has become the largest environmental struggle in Chile’s history.

Check out the trailer for Keith Malloy’s new film Come Hell or High Water.

The film explores the history and progression of the sport of bodysurfing and the pureness that comes from riding a wave. Shot primary in 16mm, the film takes a unique look at the culture, beauty and simplicity of the sport, capturing the stories and locations of those who belong to this community.

While Malloy is most widely known for his time in the water as a surfer, his exploration into the world of bodysurfing began some 10 years ago when he wanted to reconnect with the ocean and did so through bodysurfing. Said Malloy about this project, “It’s about taking a breath and kicking your feet in the big blue sea.”
