Throwback Clip of the Week: Shelter – The Momentum Generation Explored its Soulful Side in Taylor Steele’s 2001 film

Through half a dozen films, beginning with 1999′s “Thicker Than Water” and peaking with 2001′s “Shelter,” a collective of multifarious surfer-filmmakers including Jack Johnson and Emmett Malloy, along with cousins Keith, Dan, and Chris known as The Moonshine Conspiracy, dug into ’70s surf and Indie cinematography, while cribbing soundtracks from contemporary college radio and inviting their talented group of friends to strum acoustic guitars and wax existentially in rootsy surf locales around the globe.
