Byron Surf Flix gets on board with Positive Change for Marine Life to support our local surfers at the Byron Theatre on Tuesday 18th December at 7:30pm.
Byron Surf Flix takes off with the screening of the 1970’s classic Morning of the Earth by Albert Falzon, and thereafter will screen other great Surf feature films (some classic, some new) on the 3rd Tuesday each month. The film will be introduced by Rusty Miller, who is one of the surfers who appears in the film.
The night promises a chilled atmosphere with the Byron Theatre Bar open before the film and during intermission.
Morning of the Earth portrays surfers living in spiritual harmony with nature, making their own boards as they travel in search of the perfect wave across Australia’s north-east coast, Bali and Hawaii. The movie is regarded as one of the best surf flix of all time and noted as recording the first surfers to ride the waves at Uluwatu, Bali.
Surfers featured include: Chris Brock, Stephen Cooney, Terry Fitzgerald, Barry Kanaiaupuni, Gerry Lopez, Rusty Miller, Michael Peterson, Baddy Treloar, Mark Warren & Nat Young.
The film’s soundtrack was produced by G. Wayne Thomas and includes music and songs by noted Australian music acts: Tamam Shud, John J. Francis, Brian Cadd, Mike Rudd and G. Wayne Thomas. The record became the first Australian Gold soundtrack album. In October 2010, the soundtrack for Morning of the Earth (1971) was listed in the book, 100 Best Australian Albums.
Check out Morning of the Earth on the big screen in the Byron Theatre.
