MORNING OF THE EARTH
WINNER: LS/FF 10 ICON AWARD
MORNING OF THE EARTH (REMASTERED) Dir: Albert Falzon
Considered by many the greatest surf movie ever made, Albert Falzon crafted this visually stunning masterpiece around some of the most stylish, groundbreaking surfers of all time – names that redefined waveriding – Nat Young, Terry Fitzgerald, Michael Peterson, Rusty Miller et al. Shot around the legendary breaks in Australia and the North Shore – they then journey to Bali – discovering the mind-blowing waves of Uluwatu and changing the course of history for ever.
A fantasy of surfers living in three unspoiled 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, shaping their own surfboards, building their own homes and living off the land in harmony with nature – a true tale for our times.
The sound track is as sublime as the action – it’s a film that has inspired legions of creatives and waveriders alike. Now meticulously restored and beautifully remastered in 4K, we celebrate the film’s 50th Year Anniversary on the big screen. This museum-grade restoration off of the original 16mm AB rolls presents a pristine copy which, Albert says, “looks and sounds better than it ever has.” Do not miss this one off opportunity!
