Where: S.B. Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Wy., #190, Santa Barbara

Categories: Film Screening


Built on more than 25 interviews with historians, scientists, fisherman and Chumash elders, this full-length documentary presents a full historic view of the Santa Barbara Channel. The film explains how findings on our Channel Islands changed the theory of human migration, how determined individuals transformed our city from backwater to boom town, and how a few innovative abalone divers changed the face of commercial diving and the oil industry worldwide. In between are stories of surf, shipwrecks and skullduggery. Although this is a story of the Santa Barbara area, it speaks to our connection to a living environment vastly greater than ourselves, our last remaining wilderness on earth, the sea.
