Compassing Trailer

A 25 minute film about two month long surfari.

A REEF/JUST PASSING THROUGH film by CYRUS SUTTON

Produced by KORDUROY

Filmed by CLIFF ENDSLEY

with music by THE BLANK TAPES

What would you do if you had two months off???

No one knows Just Passing Through like Cyrus Sutton. And in the latest chapter of Cy’s adventures, he’s customized his van for experiencing life on the road. Through cutting, sanding, welding, and staining, he’s transformed his old van into a unique camper that’s been helping him traverse the Western side of North America to seek out good waves and good people. Reef is proud to partner with Cy on his new project, “Compassing,” a film chronicling his recent van travels.

Kings of Cannabis

You might not know who Arjan Roskam is, but you’ve probably smoked his weed. Arjan’s been breeding some of the most famous marijuana strains in the world—like White Widow, Super Silver Haze, and many others—for over 20 years.

In 1992 he opened his first coffee shop in Amsterdam and has since crafted his marijuana-breeding skills into a market-savvy empire known as Green House Seed Company, which rakes in millions of dollars a year.

He’s won 38 Cannabis Cups and has dubbed himself the King of Cannabis.

VICE joins Arjan and his crew of strain hunters in Colombia to look for three of the country’s rarest types of weed, strains that have remained genetically pure for decades. In grower’s terms, these are called landraces. We trudge up mountains and crisscross military checkpoints in the country’s still-violent south, and then head north to the breathtaking Caribbean coast. As the dominoes of criminalization fall throughout the world, Arjan is positioned to be at the forefront of the legitimate international seed trade.

Living with Art — Social inspiration of Clarion Alley:

image

This is Clarion Alley; a vibrant, colorful, artistic landscape of social expressionism located in The Mission neighborhood of San Francisco.

image

The street is notable for community and arts activity, including the Clarion Alley Mural Project, the American Indian Center and Promotoras Latinas Comunitarias de Salud. The Clarion Alley Mural Project formed in 1982, inspired by Balmy Alley and other murals and muralists of San Francisco’s Mission District. The group is an artists’ collective formed by a volunteer collective of six North Mission residents: Aaron Noble, Michael O’Connor, Sebastiana Pastor, Rigo 92, Mary Gail Snyder, and Aracely Soriano. The project creates and facilitates other artists creating murals on Clarion Alley, between Valencia and Mission Streets and surrounding areas. While the Balmy Alley mural project focused on the theme of Central American struggle, the stated goals of CAMP were social inclusiveness and aesthetic variety.

image

This is the latest mural being developed in Clarion Alley, taken just yesterday. (Each of the artists who are members of CAMP are allowed designated spaces along the walls of the alley; artists will sometimes leave their work up for months at a time, or, refresh new work within weeks of development.)
