Last Hope is a unique meeting of music and film. Created by filmmaker Andrew Kidman (Glass Love, Litmus) and Aaron Curnow of Spunk Records, the project marries 16 short films inspired by the sea with stirring music from Spunks revered stable of artists.
This is no ordinary surf film, appealing to surfers and non-surfers alike. Andrew Kidman and a selection of noted filmmakers elevate the traditional surf film into an artistic vision that treads deep to the heart of the subculture, with vintage footage, moody winter waves and some very cool music.
Kidman and band The Windy Hills bring Last Hope to Speakeasy Cinema, augmenting the already mind-blowing soundtrack with a dynamic and evolving live score.
Contributing filmmakers include: Albert Falzon (Morning Of The Earth), Richard Kenvin, Monty Webber, Patrick Trefz, Jon Frank, Michele Lockwood and Andrew Kidman. Music is supplied by Smog, Sufjan Stevens, Dirty Three, My Morning Jacket, Vetiver, Holly Throsby, Explosions In The Sky, Machine Translations and Kidmans own band The Windy Hills.
As a licensed event this screening is 18+.
Speakeasy Cinema looks like a cinema, tastes like a laneway bar and smells like your mums cooking. The program catches films on the sly by screening titles that might otherwise fall through the cracks at the usual suspects - and theres plenty of space for you to hang around and debate plot points with your pals afterwards. Additional lures include exhibitions in the gallery, after-parties, sneaks at DVD extras, Q+As, giveaways and funny meal-deals. Plus were bringing shorts back into fashion just like the olden days. Speakeasy Cinema launched in October 2009 and usually happens at 1000 Bend in Melbourne.
