Out of PlaceWhen WOSU’s Darrin McDonald isn’t hanging out at our studios at WOSU@COSI, he has been found wandering the shores of Lake Erie. Filming surfers. Really.

He’s the director and cinematographer of Out of Place, described as a “portrait of surfing in Cleveland, Ohio.” It’s got some major buzz to it, including a mention in the NY Times. I haven’t seen it, but the grittiness of the trailer gets my attention.

Check it out, esp. if you’re in the Cleveland area in late March.

“Out of Place” has three showings at the Cleveland International Film Festival: Fri. March 19-9:35pm; Sun., March 1-9:20am; Mon., March 22-5:00pm.

    Out of Place is awesome! You can feel how cold it is out on the lake. They did a great job capturing the people, too.

    I saw this film in New York City. I’ve never seen a standing ovation in a theater before, but for this movie it was well deserved.
