Facing Monsters digs deep into the psyche of West Australian surfer Kerby Brown, a man whose connection with the ocean runs as deep as his love for his family. Far more than just a surfing story, it's an unapologetic musing into the essence of Kerby and his family as we join them on his quest to ride a ferocious slab wave in the deep Southern Ocean that no one on the planet has surfed before.

Featuring stunning cinematography by Rick Rifici (Breath, Blueback), audiences are immersed in the ferocity of the Southern Ocean and the thunder of its deadly monsters as Kerby prepares to take on the ride of his life. We become part of Kerby’s journey into the unknown as Facing Monsters transports viewers to places and feelings never before experienced on the big screen.

For over 85 years, steamship Ste. Claire transported generations of Detroiters to Boblo Island, an amusement park nestled in the waters between the U.S. and Canada. When the vessel comes under threat of ruin, a doctor, psychic, and amusement park fanatic unite to save their beloved steamship from the scrapyard. Interweaving local lore and mythology, Boblo Boats explores the forgotten history of amusement parks and one crew's crusade to bring back the memories.

This documentary walks an aesthetic and narrative tightrope, accommodating rosy memories of Boblo Island without neglecting the whitewashed history of segregation in America's early amusement parks. The film pays homage to the forgotten civil rights hero Sarah E. Ray who forced the integration of Boblo Island in 1945.
