It was just a dead bear in a metal can. But unbeknownst to Eduardo Garcia, the animal was concealing a live electrical wire. As he stooped to poke at it with his knife, he was hit with 2,400 volts of electricity, which left him with gruesome, life-threatening injuries and forever altered the course of his life. Charged: The Eduardo Garcia Story recounts the heart-wrenching recovery of the “bionic chef,” adventure-seeker and Montana outdoorsman.
In Person: Dennis Aig (Director), Eduardo Garcia, Jennifer Jane
The short 120 Days: Tarpon Season will be screened prior to the feature.
About the film: Even if you know nothing about fishing, and couldn’t care less about it, you should still watch every fishing film ever made by the Felt Soul Media team. Why? Because they exemplify the art and craft of filmmaking. This latest short about saltwater flyfishing for tarpon is no exception. Using super high-resolution, black and white and their trademark, slow-motion punctuation, Ben Knight and Travis Rummel have created a piece that is dreamy and wide awake all at once. The effect is harmonized by Knight’s agile editing that gives the pace both punchiness and lyricism. And, in classic Felt Soul style, the most beautiful and arresting images of the film are peripheral to the story: In this fish film, it’s all about the birds.
