“Minds in the Water”, directed/produced by Justin Krumb and executive-produced by Jonny Vasic, is a feature-length documentary following the quest of professional surfer Dave Rastovich and his friends to protect dolphins, whales and the oceans they all share. Through Dave's journey—a five-year adventure spanning the globe from Australia to the Galapagos, Tonga, California, Alaska and Japan—we see one person’s transformation from observer to activist in his quest to help protect the ocean and its inhabitants.
Through this exciting and often dangerous journey, we see first hand how Dave’s journey has blossomed into a movement of like minds. The film captures a key moment in Dave’s life as he realizes he must make it his personal mission to help stop the worldwide commercial slaughter of dolphins and whales. While unsure at first, Dave quickly finds his activist sea legs and helps build a core team of filmmakers, journalists, musicians, eco-pirates, celebrity surfers and even a professional mermaid to help spread the message.
“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 traveled to surfing locations around the world. Cetaceans are the ultimate surfers. They are our ocean kin and it is our role to do what we can to protect their well being."
