SPIRIT OF AKASHA SESSIONS + LITMUS

SPIRIT OF AKASHA SESSIONS
by Andrew Kidman. 2013. 6 min.

A celebration of the 40th anniversary of Morning of the Earth exploring the extent to which its spirit lives on. Stephanie Gilmore surfs a Dave Parmenter single fin in an attempt to recreate and inhabit the lines Michael Peterson drew in Morning of the Earth, before machismo and commercialization overtook surfing’s mainstream. What results is one of the most inspired surf sequences this side of the millennium, and a glimpse at the kind of expression and freedom we might find beyond the strictures of the binary gender regime.

LITMUS
by Jon Frank & Andrew Kidman. 1996. 56 min.

A film that changed the course of professional surfing and influenced two generations to practice a more expressive and creative approach to wave-riding. Litmus, arguably, marks a turning point that expanded professional surfing beyond the competitive realm. The film seeks to reignite a spirit of self expression and creative exploration that got lost in the commercialization of the late 80s and early 90s.

*This screening is part of our official festival! Stay tuned for more details.
