Devil's Teeth

Devil’s Teeth is a film about the only sea urchin diver at the Farallon Islands off the coast of California, his dreams and frequent encounters with Great White Sharks, his past shooting downers and getting Hepatitis C. Roger Teich says about the film, “I have tried to make a parable about finding freedom when your insides are fucked up, how to deal with illness and fear, a child’s tale about staring into the monster’s yellow eyes. I know from my own life that chronic illness and pain aren’t choices that we make, but jumping into black water with big white sharks is a choice Ron Elliott makes, and I find great beauty in that.”
