This film takes viewers on a wild adventure into nature following adventurer Jeff Johnson as he retraces the epic 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia. Slow is Fast is a short film filmed in September 2012; Dan Malloy, Kanoa Zimmerman and Kellen Keene rode bikes down the California coast hoping to see their home state in a new slower-paced light — surfing, camping, staying with friends and lending a hand wherever they could to earn their keep. Movie screenings are sponsored by your own wilderness and watersports Aztec Recreation programs: Aztec Adventures and Mission Bay Aquatic Center. Pick up your free tickets at the ARC Climbing Wall or Mission Bay Aquatic Center. Doors open at 6pm and screenings start at 6:30pm.

Mat supply is our only limit, so please bring a mat if you own one. Arrive early and bring your I.D.
