Between the Lines is a new documentary film that looks at the Vietnam War through the lives of California surfers Pat Farley and Brant Page—one of whom, Farley, was drafted and sent to Vietnam, and the other who fled to Hawaii to avoid serving, and to keep surfing. The film contains archival footage, including GI’s surfing at China Beach and elsewhere in South Vietnam, along with home movies and interviews.
The filmmakers are publicizing the documentary with benefit screenings. That includes one that will be held on June 26 at Hansen Surfboards in Encinitas, California, to benefit the Rick Thomas Veterans Counseling Center in San Diego.
