BEYOND THE SURFACE

When Ishita Malaviya first picked up a surfboard, she could count all of India's native surfers on her fingers. Now, as interest in the subcontinent's untouched beaches begins to swell, India's first and only, professional female surfer is at the heart of a flourishing scene she hopes can bring real social change to the country.

In the 16 mm documentary film 'Beyond the Surface', Ishita is joined by a unique and talented group of women – Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Liz Clark, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch and Kate Baldwin. With unshakable determination for a better world, they travel through Southern India documenting the ways that surfing, yoga and ecological creativity are bringing hope, and fuelling change for local people and the planet.

Cast: Ishita Malaviya, Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Liz Clark, Lauren Hill, Emi Koch and Kate Baldwin.
