Big Miracle

Based on a true story, everyone comes together for a common purpose: to save three gray whales trapped off the northern coast of Alaska by Arctic ice, struggling to breathe in a small, slowly shrinking hole. The event in 1988 galvanized a rare coalition of forces in conflict with one another for the rescue mission: President Reagan and Soviet officials, along with big oil and environmental activists. Called "Operation Breakthrough," the story was broken by TV reporter Adam Carlson. (Available in theatres everywhere; Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Romance, Comedy; Running Time: 1 hr., 46 min.)

This is a unique documentary on the social impact of an indigenous community by the introduction of surfing in the 1980s by an Aussie pilot.

The film follows four, native competitors going against professionals for national surfing titles. The local winner gets to train with surfing athletes in Australia. (Available in select theatres; Genre: Documentary, Sports & Fitness; Running Time: 1 hr., 35 min.)
