Published by: KabukuPR | 28-Feb-2022
Introducing Surfing Soundwaves Feat. Headland, which will host the premiere of award-winning Australian director Jolyon Hoff’s (The Staging Post, SWIFF’18) epic new film, That Was Then, This is Now, with Australian composers Headland
Before Crocodile Dundee became Australia’s cultural identity to the world for decades, bronzed Aussies surfers were our national identity – seen around the world thanks to Australia’s pioneering surf filmmakers.

The Surf Film Archive, Light Sound Art Film, and SWIFF have teamed up with Headland to create a pulsing audio-visual experience celebrating the birth of Australia’s surf culture. Examining Australia’s cultural identity as a surfing nation, this film presents restored and remastered Australian and New Zealand original surf films, uncovering remarkable never-seen-before footage, preserving these influential moving pictures for future generations.

In this not-to-be-missed live music and film screening event, Headland (previously live at SWIFF’20) perform, in a 6-piece ensemble, an original and unique soundtrack to the absolute best of the archives’ stunningly restored surf visuals. All restored in glorious 4K.

This is Australian surfing – live and loud on stage.

It will be held on Saturday 30th April at the CHEC Theatre.

Suitable for ages 12+ (mild nudity).
