From the looks of the Allah Las members’ social media, it would seem as if every moment offstage is spent on an exotic beach in a remote paradise. It’s no surprise they would be pegged to soundtrack a surf film. The addition of Connan Mockasin and MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden make Chris Gentile’s “Self Discovery for Social Survival” an ever-intriguing project maxed out on cool points.
Gentile’s film, narrated by the late avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas, follows pro-surfers Stephanie Gilmore, Creed McTaggart and Ryan Burch, among others, as they hit the waves in Mexico, the Maldives, and Iceland.
The screening will be accompanied by the musicians performing the film’s score en vivo.
