“The documentary, is a film exploring the complexity of race in America through the eyes of the ocean,” says the film’s website. It explores slavery and civil rights and surfing in contemporary times at surf sites in Santa Monica and Southern California.

The 78-minute film is narrated by acclaimed Grammy Award winning musician, Ben Harper, and Tariq "Blackthought" Trotter of the Grammy Award winning hip hop group, The Roots, who also provide the documentary’s soundtrack. Through the film “we learn the power of transcending race as a constructive phenomenon,” states the official White Wash website.

Following the screening will be a discussion. Discussion panelists will include the film’s director, Ted Woods, blacksuring.com founder Rick Blocker and historian Alison Rose Jefferson. The program is produced in partnership with Heal the Bay, Santa Monica, Conservancy, the California Historical Society, and the NAACP. The screening and discussion is part of a three week celebration of Santa Monica’s coastal and water resources that begins on Saturday, September 15, with Coastal Cleanup Day.

Admission to the program is free and all ages are welcome, however, seating is limited and available on a first arrival basis. To view the film’s trailer visit whitewashmovie.com.
