South East Queensland cinema gets surfy
South East Queensland cinemas to show 'Fighting Fear' 'Bending Colours' and more
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 September, 2012 : - - This Spring sports fans will have a unique opportunity to experience extreme sports action on the big screen at South East Queensland cinemas. Every two weeks four cinemas across Brisbane and the Gold Coast will play host to ‘The Sessions’ series of ‘The Best Action Sports Films of All Time’! Ranging from surfing, to snowboarding and even mountain biking, there’s something for hard core fans and everyone looking for something a little different at the movies.
‘Fighting Fear’ (starring Mark Mathews, Richie Vaculik and Kelly Slater), takes a look into the life of Big Wave Surfer Mark Mathews on his quest to be the best in the game. Whilst sharing their passion of big wave surfing, Mark’s mate Richie Vaculik dreams of trading in his carpet laying job to become a MMA Cage-Fighting Champion.
A film that captures the lives of the fearless as they live life on the edge, daring each other to surf bigger waves, party harder, and take greater risks. But when their adrenalin-seeking antics & hardened partying turns sour, it sets in motion a dramatic and life-changing series of events that threatens to derail everything they have worked so hard for. One good friend can change your life and so can one big wave.
‘This Time Tomorrow’ (starring Craig Anderson, Dave Rastovich, Chris Del Morro, Alex Grey, Dan Malloy & Kelly Slater), joins one crew of surfers, as they follow the same swell over 18,000 miles in 8 days. Surfer Magazine called this “The most ambitious surf trip ever”.
‘Bending Colours’ (starring Jordy Smith, Dane Reynolds, Mitch Coleborn, Kolohe Andino & Dusty Payne), is a moving portrait of Jordy Smith. This is not a biopic...It’s a never-before seen insight into game changing next level surfing. From an average school kid in South Africa, a cocky tour rookie, to the professional world title threat he is today, ‘Bending Colours’ tells his epic story.
