The Adventures of Jared Mell

– Pour le sous-titrage francais, selectionnez CC dans la barre de lecture –

Not many people embody the true spirit of California the way Jared Mell does. With an outlook on life so laid back it’s practically horizontal and a carefree approach to surfing which oozes class and style, Jared has forged his own way of life.
Director Josh Penn Soskin brings us a beautifully crafted insight into Jared’s world, a world without rules and without destinations. A world with an open road.

This short film is based on the article “The Adventures of Jared Mell” published in Desillusion Magazine 49, Volume 1.
