Blaskets surf movie to premiere in Dingle

An interesting surfing documentary set around the Blasket islands is to premiere at the Dingle International Film festival this Saturday. The Crest follows cousins Andrew Jacob and Dennis Kane as they trace their ancestry back to the Blasket Islands and surf the waves of their ancestral homeland, where their great great grandfather once presided as ‘An Rí’ – the king of the islands.

Check out the trailer below:

With surfing and the West coast, we’re really looking forward to checking this out!

The Crest will be screened at 6pm on Saturday 19 March at the Blasket Centre, and again on Sunday 20 March at 2pm in the Phoenix Cinema. Visit the Dingle International Film Festival programme for lots of other movies being shown.
