Self Discovery for Social Survival is a collaborative film from record label Mexican Summer and Pilgrim Surf + Supply.
Filmed in Mexico, the Maldives, and Iceland in three separate vignettes, musicians (Allah-Las, Connan Mockasin, Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT, and Peaking Lights) and pro-surfers (Stephanie Gilmore, Creed McTaggart, Ryan Burch + more) embark on sound and surf journeys that conjures a surreal and serene symbiosis of music, the environment, and local culture. The film is poetically narrated by the legendary avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas, one of his last recorded testaments.
Self Discovery for Social Survival premieres in Los Angeles at The Palace Theatre on Saturday, June 15 2019, with a live score performed by Allah-Las, Connan Mockasin, and Andrew VanWyngarden of MGMT.
Tickets for the premiere are available here.
