From Netflix: "Doug Pray's documentary delves into the often inspiring, sometimes shocking life of 85-year-old Dorian Doc' Paskowitz, a renowned surfer, surf camp owner, doctor and sex guru who, together with his wife, brought up nine children. Paskowitz raised his family in a camper on the beach, home-schooling them and requiring them to follow a strict lifestyle regimen. Now, his grown children speak out about how their unique upbringing affected them."


This film will be showing around the country during the summer of 2008. It was released in DVD in July 2008.
It is a disturbing film, but one that should be watched. Some of Pantrowitz's behavior was a form of child abuse in my opinion. He has mellowed with age. See it and judge for yourself.
