Sombrio – March 8, 2006

Awareness Video Night presents “Sombrio” . Filmmaker Paul Manly will be on hand for the screening of his recently released film which documents the end of a diverse community of surfers and squatters that existed on Sombrio Beach for more than thirty years. It captures the residents over a two-year period and reveals their personal stories and convictions as they come to terms with their impending eviction. The images of the ocean are stunning and the prowess of virtuoso surfers simply amazing. In recent film festivals in both Victoria and Nanaimo screenings of “Sombrio” have all been sold out.
“A surprise hit at the Victoria Independent Film and Video Festival” ……….Globe and Mail -Tom Hawthorn

“Wonderful work. Sombrio needs to be seen by a whole lot of people. It certainly makes us think of living and the land in a whole new way” CBC Radio – Paul Vasey

7 p.m. March 8th Edward Milne Community School 6218 Sooke Rd. By donation.
