Tribeca 2013 Interview: The Rider And The Storm’s David Darg & Bryn Mooser

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On April - 21 - 2013 0 Comment

Timmy Brennan in The Rider and the StormYet again, David Darg and Bryn Mooser come to the Tribeca Film Festival with a short documentary highlighting the good that can exist even in the midst of a disaster. It was “Sun City Picture House” in 2011, “Baseball in the Time of Cholera” in 2012, and now “The Rider and the Storm” in 2013.

The film takes place just after Hurricane Sandy plowed through the New York region, but the story hones in on one particular victim, Timmy Brennan, a Freedom Tower ironworker and devout surfer. Timmy was one of many who not only felt the brunt of Hurricane Sandy’s rain and winds, but the fires the storm sparked, too, losing his Breezy Point home and everything he owned, including his precious surfboard. However, despite the overwhelming devastation, there was also a great show of kindness from strangers, giving Timmy and the rest of the Breezy Point community a new sense of hope.

As full time relief workers, Darg and Mooser’s efforts to do good and help struggling communities never ends and, seemingly, neither does their hope to take it one step further by inspiring action through film. In honor of “The Rider and the Storm’s” Tribeca premiere, Darg and Mooser came out for our third chat, discussing the evolution of their new film, the importance of debuting it in New York City, plans for a feature, and more. Check it all out for yourself in the video interview below and join the effort to rebuild Breezy Point yourself via The RYOT Foundation.
