Heavy Water culminates in a spectacular, never- before-performed stunt, where Fletcher acid drops from a helicopter into a huge wave.
Attendees will also view a behind-the-scenes look at the planning and execution of the acid drop, a pre-recorded Q&A with director Michael Oblowitz and Nathan Fletcher answering audience questions on their experience making the film, and Surfers' Hall of Famer Herbie Fletcher on the origins of tow-in surfing.
Tickets for Heavy Water can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.

The film features a score by Porno for Pyros' Peter di Stefano and Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk.
This is a beautifully shot and truly engaging story of the history of big wave surfing that is a must-see for fans of extreme sports, said Ray Nutt, Fathom Events CEO.
