award-win­ning doc­u­men­tary chart­ing surfer Dave Ras­tovich’s per­sonal odyssey from pro­fes­sional wa­verider to com­mit­ted ma­rine ac­tivist pre­mieres to Gold Coast au­di­ences at Ko­mune in Coolan­gatta to­mor­row night. Minds in the Water charts five years in the life of Ras­tovich and his friends as they work to pro­tect dol­phins, whales and the wider ocean. Shot at some of the world’s best surf spots and en­vi­ron­men­tal hot spots in Australia, the Gala­pa­gos, Tonga, Cal­i­for­nia, Alaska and Ja­pan, the doc­u­men­tary backs its en­vi­ron­men­tal mes­sage with cut­ting-edge surf and protest footage. ‘‘As ocean peo­ple, it is our priv­i­lege to be the cus­to­di­ans of our coast­lines,’’ says Ras­tovich. ‘‘The film doc­u­ments our at­tempt at ful­fill­ing that role as we trav­elled to surf­ing lo­ca­tions around the world.’’
