About the Film:
Part of the Honolulu Surf Film Festival 2016
Directed by Andrew Kidman. Australia. 1995. 56 min.
When Litmus first came out in the 1995, the film was panned in Australia. Today it’s viewed as a big influence on surf filmmaking. In a time when surfing was at the peak period of conservatism and everyone was riding potato chip boards, Andrew Kidman and Jon Frank wanted something different. The duo purchased around-the-world tickets and set off to make a film like no other. Starring Wayne Lynch, Derek Hynd, and Tom Curren and featuring an animation by Mark Sutherland, this film opened up a new way of viewing surf filmmaking and continues to resonate with surfers today. Don’t miss this special one-time screening of a film that defined a decade.
