Momentum Generation

November 29, 2018 | 6:30pm

In the late ’80s, surfing was still in the early stages of its ascent to broad popularity and entrenched professionalization. On the north shore of O’ahu, a ragtag group of teenage surfers congregated in a small house with easy access to the infamous surfing spot known as the Pipeline. Some, having already built careers surfing smaller waves in Florida and California, were there to prove themselves against the best surfers in Hawaii, while others were young locals looking for a group of guys to surf with—and all sought a community of people on whom they could depend, in ways they never found in their own volatile home lives. This younger generation, living together like canned sardines, would go on to become the most influential contingent of athletes the sport had seen. They were the Momentum Generation, and they brought surfing to unprecedented heights.

Studio 54

August 02, 2018 | 8:10pm

With  rare  footage,  a  parade  of  colorful  patrons  and  staff,  and  brutally  honest  interviews  with  Schrager  himself,  Studio  54  is  a  riveting  study  in  contradictions.  Inside  the  palatial  theatre-turned-disco,  the  crowd  reveled  in  an  atmosphere  of  total  acceptance,  whether  drag  queen,  octogenarian,  waiter,  or  celebrity.  Yet  outside,  a  frenzied,  excluded  mob  yearned  to  be  noticed  by  the  doorman  and  ushered  into  the  sanctum  of  pulsating  love.  Schrager  and  Rubell’s  glittering  creation  sprang  from  carefree  naiveté  and  unbridled  ambition—yet  those  same  instincts  managed  to  destroy  it.  This  bracing  story  reveals  how  even  the  most  culturally  potent  and  transformative  phenomena  can  be  vulnerable  and  fleeting.
