Film @ MOA this July

Contact: Thomas Spagnol (252) 335-1453

(Elizabeth City, NC) The beach surf documentary "Any Given Morning" will be shown by the Museum of the Albemarle, 501 South Water Street in Elizabeth City on Saturday, July 25th at 2:00 pm in the Gaither Auditorium. On hand will be the film's creator Laurel Hughes. Hughes, a native of Elizabeth City first got the surfing 'bug' in 2006 and it bit her hard. She worked in Wilmington, North Carolina and had easy access to the beach. She befriended a group of surfers who surfed at Wrightsville Beach and, after seeing a surf film at a local film festival, decided to tell their stories on film. Hughes and her crew spent a year making the film which was, not surprisingly, a labor of love.

Hughes will be on hand after the movie for a question and answer session. Light refreshments will be served.

This is a free event.
