The Granite Stoke Screening

Saturday, October 18th

A Film Directed by Ryan Scura ’11

New Hampshire is not known for its waves, but a vibrant surfing
community calls this 13-mile coastline home. The Granite Stoke,
directed by Ryan Scura ’11 and Dylan Ladds (RISD ’11), was initially
funded by Middlebury’s PCI MiddChallenge (formerly Stonehenge)
grant and recently was made into a feature-length film.
