WADE IN THE WATER

Part of the 3rd annual Benny Beya Bash with Kassia Meador + Leah Dawson.

We are thrilled to co-present the east coast premiere of Wade in the Water as part of the 3rd annual Benny Beya Bash with Kassia Meador and Leah Dawson. Big thanks to Kwame La Bassiere for sharing this essential documentary and to Blundstone for making this event possible.

WADE IN THE WATER, David Mesfin. 2023. 80 min.

Wade in the Water: A Journey into Black Surfing and Aquatic Culture reclaims the 1,000-year-old tradition of Black surfing. Braiding historical accounts with modern-day testimonials, the film dismantles the racial barriers of conventional surf culture, delves into the overlooked history of Black surfing's legacy, and honors its current movement—inspiring the next generation of Black surfers.
