Description

Guys, we guarantee you’ve never seen a movie quite like White Tide. And we promise that you’ve never met anyone quite like Rodney Hyden. Rodney was living the American dream—successful construction business, wonderful family, plenty of Florida sunshine—until the Great Recession crashed down on him and sent him into despair. Deep in debt and living in a trailer, Rodney hears a story from his hippie neighbor about a buried treasure on an island, and suddenly begins to see his dream rekindled. But this time the dream means digging up $2 million in cocaine, figuring out how to sell it, and basically becoming some sort of modern day Scarface, all for the sake of his wife and daughter. Though it sounds like the plot of the next incarnation of Breaking Bad, the story is 100% true, and told with unbelievable charm and wit in this documentary that defies all traditional definitions. Mixing real life interviews with the outlandish characters themselves and cleverly produced reenactments of the events featuring the real-life players, Theo Love’s complete laugh riot will astound you with its masterful telling of an amazing story. A wild and wacky ride that will make you wonder: if you knew where to dig up potential millions, would you do it, too? IN PERSON: Director Theo Love and Producer Bryan Storkel.
