Date:8/3/2009

The story of a gifted young surfer devastated by an accident, featuring music by Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Jason Mraz, G. Love & others

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2009 -- Domestix, a Beverly Hills based domestic sales company, is proud to announce that Jesse's Story will be opening the Malibu Film Festival on Thursday, August 6th at the Malibu Cinemas. "Domestix is thrilled to be involved with Jesse's Story. It is rare to find a documentary, with a compelling story, told by a talented filmmaker who understands how important music, culture and the environment are to a great documentary. Jesse's Story is the perfect blend of inspiration, engaging characters, humanity and heart. This is exactly the type of film that people will connect with," stated Elsa Ramo founder of Domestix and the Law Offices of Elsa Ramo.

Jesse's Story chronicles the life of Jesse Billauer, a gifted, multi-sport athlete, who developed into an up-and-coming professional surfer with unlimited promise. This is not a surf film, but rather one of inspiration. A tale of a young man who in a tragic surfing accident at the age of 17 severed his spinal cord, and now lives life as a quadriplegic, this is THE story of how his life changed forever. As news spread through the surfing community of the accident, many of Jesse's would-be competitors came to his aid. With the help of nine-time World Champion Kelly Slater and Hurley team member Rob Machado, Jesse devised a way to get back where he belonged: in the water. This is a story of a determined young man who succeeds where others might fail. It features captivating childhood footage taken by his parents; an emotional, minute-by-minute account of that fateful day at Zuma Beach by the surfers who saved his life and ultimately Jesse's return to surfing. Veteran Director Mark Jacobs, who has spent more then twenty years in the film and television industry, spent over eight years working on this film, a true labor of love. "Within the first five minutes of meeting Jesse, I forgot he was in a wheelchair and was truly inspired to live my "life to the fullest". It's for that reason I chose to spend 8 years of my life bringing the story of Jesse Billauer to audiences."

The documentary stars Jesse Billauer and features, Christopher Reeve, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Bob Hurley, Rob Machado, Kelly Slater, Shane Dorian, as well as a host of friends and family. Written, Directed and Produced by Mark Jacobs, Jesse's Story is a Zzyzx Films Production. Jesse's Story will open the 10th Annual Malibu Film Festival on Thursday, August 6 at the Malibu Cinemas at 8:00 p.m., followed by the opening night party at Duke's Malibu.
