We’re proud to announce the release of Self Discovery For Social Survival, a surf and music film project we produced with our friends Pilgrim Surf + Supply and Mexican Summer over the past 3 years. The film will premiere alongside live performances by the Allah Las, Connan Mockasin and Andrew VanWyngarden at The Palace Theatre, LA on June 15, 2019.

Self Discovery for Social Survival is a collaborative film from record label Mexican Summer and surf and outdoor brand Pilgrim Surf + Supply.

Filmed in Mexico, the Maldives, and Iceland in three separate vignettes, musicians (Allah-Las, Connan Mockasin, Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT, and Peaking Lights) and pro-surfers (Stephanie Gilmore, Creed McTaggart, Ryan Burch + more) embark on sound and surf journeys that conjures a surreal and serene symbiosis of music, the environment, and local culture. The film is poetically narrated by the legendary avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas, one of his last recorded testaments.

Directed by Chris Gentile. Produced by Chelsea Slayter. Cinematography by Sebastian Slayter.
