WANDERJAHR – 20th Anniversary
If you grew up in the 80s and 90s VHS surf films where absolute gospel, Australian surfing was an absolute powerhouse, rock was the soundtrack and a 6’4” your daily driver. Power surfing reigned supreme. That era of Australian surfing left a lasting impression on filmmaker Justin Gane, the man behind cult classics; Tempo, PULSE, Supa Dupa, Odyssey and the widely-admired documentary ‘Wanderjahr – The Margo Project’. To coincide with the latter’s 20-year-anniversary, Gane will stage a screening. All these years later the film’s star, Brendan Margieson, and his surfing has endured. Margo was one of the first fully fledged freesurfers in the world. Gifted the golden ticket from then sponsor Billabong, Margs chased swells to some of the most exotic locations around the world and along the way influenced generations.
