Morning of the Earth Film

Summer Saturday Surf Film

Saturday, June 17, 8pm
Morning of the Earth ( 1972 ) made by Alby Falzon was intended as an environmental statement presenting or suggesting an idealistic world in which surfers lived in harmony with the powers of nature. This was presented without narration or sub titles, and without any attempt to identify the surfing or the surfer’s locations, using music and imagery to provide an emotional context, and the lyrics of songs to reinforce its simple message.
