Butter Flavored Films has begun production on a narrative surf documentary called The Crest. The film will follow two Irish-American cousins, both great great grandchildren of the King of the Blasket Islands. Until recently they’ve lived remarkably similar lives on opposite coasts, unaware of each other’s existence. This year they’ll meet for the first time and bring their shared passion, surfing, to the dangerous waters of their ancestors’ now abandoned island.
A Band Called Death will be released to video-on-demand on May 24th, and will be released in theaters by Drafthouse Films on June 28th.
