PROJECT Y

Director: Kyle von Hoetzendorff, Daniel Pasley , Greg Schmitt
Producer: kyle von Hoetzendorff, Daniel Pasley

Nobody can say with certainty why humans—Subject Athletes—are compelled to push their Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Emotional limits without causation. Until now. Kinda. We made a science documentary to finally answer the question: What’s the deal with endeavors and sports and activities commonly referred to as Type 2 or “Latent Fun™? We interviewed Scientists, Rabbis, Nutritionists, Anthropologists, Jungian Dream Therapists, etc., we experimented on a control group of Subject Athletes while they trained and raced the Dirty Kanza 200, the world’s premier “Sucks Event”.

GLORY RIDE

(United States, 10 min)
Colorado Premiere
Director and Producer: Perry Gershkow

Ocean Beach, SF resident Ian “Big Dog” Glover is an example of a person who has found their calling in life and is fulfilling it. The grins on his Big Dog Surf Camp students’ faces as he satirically lectures them about reading their “surfing textbooks” and “maybe getting to surf” is proof of that. From a young age Glover was taught to give a little bit of whatever he had to someone in need. It was a hard lesson for him to learn at first but ultimately shaped how he lives his life today. Follow Glover as he shares his relationship with the ocean, enthusiasm for teaching people to surf and a service project with craftsman Jay Nelson and artist Ian Ross in “Glory Ride,” by Perry Gershkow.
