Morning Of The Earth

Morning of the Earth ( 1972 ) made by Alby Falzon was intended as an e nvironmental statement presenting or suggesting an idealistic world in which surfers lived in harmony with the powers of nature. This was presented without narration or sub titles, and without any attempt to identify the surfing or the surfer’s locations, using music and imagery to provide an emotional context, and the lyrics of songs to reinforce its simple message.

In doing so Alby Falzon captured the imagination of a surfing generation, and created a piece, that still speaks in many different volumes to surfers today. Environmentalism, Freedom, Conscience, Peace. Alby lets you decide. KF
