Iconic flick in concert
MORNING of the Earth, the iconic cult surf documentary by Albe Falzon, is about to hit the stage.
More than 36 years on from its birth, the positive surf flick about surfing the waves of the world is now a brilliant music and film experience.
And it's coming to Port Macquarie's Cassegrain Winery this Easter long weekend.
“This is a classic surf film that many people from the would have in their home, especially since many of the scenes took place on our coastline at Lennox Head, Angourie and Broken Head.
“Seeing this in an outdoor concert on a big screen with the sound track being played live… it will truly come to life,” Sand Events director Scott Mesiti said.
“Being able to add new footage and interviews with original surfers to the film in its entirety also gives an added dimension to a new audience who might have only heard about the film and music from their parents.
“There is truly something for everyone in this impressive production,” Amanda Pelman of Chugg Entertainment said.
The concert features the full length film - plus new footage from Albe and some of today's hottest film makers - played as the backdrop on a big screen to performances of the entire soundtrack.
Port Macquarie's Cassegrain Winery is the perfect venue to kick back, relax and absorb the visual and audio voyage of Morning of the Earth.
Gates open at 6pm, there will be food and retail stores and Sundowner Holidays have compiled some great accommodation packages while are offering a free kids club - making the occasion an ideal long-weekend getaway.
Prices from $55 to $110 plus booking fee.
