JOHNSTOWN — Johnstown resident Chad King, a student at Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in Orange, Calif., will have his documentary screened at 10 tonight in the Folino Theater on the Dodge campus.

King’s documentary, which was filmed in Hawaii, is about sexism in the surfing industry.

King is the son of Mary and Michael King of the city’s Hornerstown neighborhood.

This will be the second annual screening of the Project W documentary films.

Last year, Dodge College launched an initiative to make films about inspiring women leaders across the country who are creating change through stories of courage in the face of adversity.

Other documentaries will include the story of an Inuit Eskimo woman working to stop domestic abuse in her small Alaskan fishing village; a film about the Pink Helmet Posse, three 6-year-old girls who aspire to be professional skateboarders; and a story about a lesbian motorcycle gang based in Long Beach, Calif.
