Heavy Surf Line up next weekend via NYC

Friday, Feb 1st
SURFWISE, Doug Pray, 2007, 93 minutes
Legendary surfer, Dorican “Doc” Paskowitz, abandoned a successful medical practice to withdraw from the lifestyle of mainstream America. But unlike other American searchers like Thoreau or Kerouac, Paskowitz took his wife and nine children along for the ride, all eleven of them living in a 24-foot camper. The family spent their days living by Doc’s rules on health, fitness, sexuality, and above all surfing.

ODE to California, dir. Patrick Trefz, 2010, b+w film, 9 minutes
Everyone is familiar with the stereotypical beach experience. But anyone who's ever been in the sea understands that the ocean is a vast wilderness, and the northern California ocean reality is not always what it seems to be. "Ode to California" is a sign of things to come and yet evades all expectations. "Ode to California" is a vision into the heart of the ocean.

Morning of the Earth, 79 minutes, 1971, Albie Falzon, David Elfick
Classic, rarely-seen first film from Albie Falzon, creator of renowned Australian surfing magazine TRACKS, and David Elfick come this early fantasy of surfers living in three unspoiled lands and playing in nature’s ocean. The most ambitious surf film of its time—the directors show surfers making their own boards (and homes) as they travel in search of the perfect wave across Australia’s north-east coast, Bali and Hawaii. The film’s soundtrack was produced by G. Wayne Thomas and included music and songs by noted Australian music groups: Taman Shud, John J. Francis, Brian Cadd and G. Wayne Thomas. The record became the first Australian Gold soundtrack album. In October 2010, the soundtrack for Morning of the Earth was listed in the book100 Best Australian Albums.
