Event Description

On Thursday, May 10, Teton Gravity Research is excited to present the east coast premiere of our new film, Andy Irons: Kissed by God. The event takes place at NYU Skirball in New York City. Theatre doors open at 7:00, the film will start at 8:00.

Kissed by God is a film about bipolar disorder and opioid addiction as seen through the life of three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons. Andy struggled with the same demons that millions of people worldwide battle with daily.

Andy was an incredible presence on the world stage as the “People’s Champion.” He was the pride of Hawaii and revered around the world for his blue collar rise to fame and success. However, many were unaware of the internal battles that led to his demise.

As the opioid crisis rises to a national emergency in the United States, the untold story of Andy’s life serves to tear down the myths associated with these two ferocious diseases.

We hope that you can join us at the East Coast premiere of this film.  Tickets are extremely limited given expected demand, and are only available via a sign-up process and select giveaways.  For a chance to win tickets, sign up using the “buy tickets” button above or by clicking here.
