About the event

** Also showing will be an extra special SURPRISE short film **  The 1972 Classic Hippie Surf Film. Widely regarded as one of the finest films of its genre, Morning of the Earth portrays surfers living in spiritual harmony with nature, making their own boards (and homes) as they travel across Australia's north-east coast, Bali and Hawaii. The film is noted as recording the first surfers to ride the waves at Uluwatu on the very southern tip of Bali and so bringing Bali to the attention of surfers around the world.  Accompanied by the psychedelic tunes of G. Wayne Thomas whose soundtrack became a gold record in Australia. Morning of the Earth begins to channel the energy of the early 70’s counterculture and remains an important document of a bygone era. Directed by Alby Falzon, David Elfick.
