The Center for Contemporary Art, 1519 19th St. in Sacramento (CCAS) invites the community to ride some uncharted waves with the screening and discussion of the film “White Wash” and exhibition.

The documentary film features 10-time Association of Surfing Professional World Champion Surfer Kelly Slater, Triple Crown of Surfing winner Rob Machado, Legendary Pro Surfer Buttons Kaluhiokalani and more.

Narrated by Grammy-winner Ben Harper, in conjunction with Black Thought of the Grammy Award winning group, The Roots, the film explores the history of surfing culture and breaks all “surfer dude” stereotypes by uncovering the succession of African-Americans riding the waves.

While paying respect to the ocean, filmmaker Ted Woods and producers Airrion Copeland and Dan Munger illustrate a comprehensive study from the perspective of black surfers from Hawaii, Jamaica, Florida and California, blending archival footage and conversations with professors, historians, authors, organizations and professional surfers.

CCAS will host a film screening, community discussion and exhibition preview with featured guests: the film’s director, Woods and producer, Copeland on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m. (please note seating is extremely limited — please RSVP by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 6 by calling 916-498-9811.

Woods and Copeland will recount their personal journey, while discussing surf history, its origin, and its evolution, all the while preserving the love of catching that giant wave.

An additional screening of the film will be on Feb. 16 at 2 p.m. The exhibition will run from Feb. 7 to 24.
