A California-born Jew travels to a landlocked country to learn to surf.
Dick Dale plays in the backseat of a too hot car.
The smell of the beach.
Shimmering between here/now, then/there, this place/another place, Other Inland Empires traces the Jewish roots of surf culture from Europe to California and back again. Pop music meditations, inflatable palm trees, slow dances, and untold family stories mix with playful humour, seagulls, and the one and only Gidget.
