About the Film:

Morning of the Earth
Directed by Albert Falzon. Australia. 1972 . 77 mins

An ode to the soul-surfer lifestyle and early 1970s counter culture, Morning of the Earth is considered one of the most influential surf films of all time. Set to a legendary soundtrack by music producer G. Wayne Thomas, Albert Falzon’s crystal-clear cinematography revealed the pioneering spirit of a generation of surfers such as Michael Peterson, Terry Fitzgerald, and Nat Young. They prized personal freedom, tuned into their natural environment, and embraced surfing as a way of life. Without the need for a narrator, the film visually evokes the quest for the ultimate untouched surftopia, as surfers journey across Australia's Northeast coast, Bali, and Hawai‘i. Falzon’s portrayal of all things pure and simple remains a testament to its time and has passed on an enduring spirit to surf culture, surf music, and surf lifestyle. As Surfer Magazine put it, Morning of the Earth is “about the Garden of Eden, plus waves, minus serpent.”
