Sundance Channel to Host Broadcast Premiere of Barefoot Wine’sÂ® Film “One Beach” on December 21
MODESTO, Calif., Dec. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — On Wednesday, December 21, Sundance Channel will host the broadcast premiere of Barefoot Wine’s One Beach, a film that tells the personal stories of people who are using creativity and innovation to help keep the world’s beaches “barefoot friendly.” Directed by renowned surf filmmaker Jason Baffa and produced by Farm League, the film profiles six passionate people who are working to help fix the global beach trash problem.
The beach enthusiasts featured in One Beach are making waves in their respective fields and their work caught Barefoot Wine’s attention. They include:
- Richard + Judith Lang (California): Artists who collect plastic from their local beach to create large sculptures, installations, photo tableaus and jewelry.
- Kevin Cunningham (Rhode Island): RISD graduate who builds surf boards from beach trash.
- Barbara de Vries (Bahamas): Fashion designer who makes jewelry and fashion t-shirts from found beach plastic.
- Tim Silverwood (Australia): Environmentalist who founded the nonprofit Take 3, focused on beach health and taking the time to pick up litter.
- Jim Moriarty (California): Avid surfer and CEO of Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.
Additional footage for One Beach was captured on International Surfing Day, an annual worldwide event founded by Surfrider Foundation and SURFING magazine that celebrates the sport of surfing while raising awareness through beach cleanups, paddle outs, rallies and more. Barefoot Wine was the presenting sponsor of the 2011 International Surfing Day and has been a supporter of Surfrider Foundation for more than 15 years.
One Beach debuts on Wednesday, December 21st at 9:00 PM and will replay on Saturday, December 24th at 9:30 AM, Thursday, December 29th at 10:30 PM and Saturday, December 31st at 2:30 PM on Sundance Channel (all times EST, please check local listings).
