Morning of the Earth – 50th Anniversary presented by Tracks Magazine



Celebrating 50 years of the film that inspired a generation. Meticulously remastered in 4K. In addition to the remastered version of MOTE, the anniversary screenings will also feature the short film 50 Years Around the Sun, which showcases never-been-seen-outtakes from the MOTE “Lost Reels”.

Albert Falzon’s 1972 Classic, Morning of the Earth, is internationally renowned as one of the greatest surf films of all time. Its psychedelic imagery and audio-visual tour de force captured the spirit of a generation and became an instant benchmark of avant-garde cinema.

A fantasy of surfers living in unspoilt lands and playing in nature’s oceans, Morning of the Earth tells the story of a group of friends exploring the measures of all things beautiful: searching for virgin waves in Bali, Hawaii and Australia, shaping their own surfboards, building their own homes and living off the land in harmony with nature.

With G. Wayne Thomas’ billboard topping soundtrack (the first Australian soundtrack to go gold) and surfing featuring some of the world’s best, Morning of the Earth is a must-watch and prerequisite for any surfer and cinephile alike.
