Surfing Fravela and The Byron Bay Film Festival

A film about young surfers from Rio de Janeiro that shows us how the free spirit of surfing can enlighten the soul.

One remedy for such an intolerable internal rash is to go to The Byron Bay Film Festival and see SURFING FAVELA. A film about young surfers from Rio de Janeiro, that shows us how the free spirit of surfing can enlighten the soul and lift even the most destitute out of hellish situations (be it for only a few hours a day). The crammed fravelas (slums) they live in and the drug wars and violence that abounds them is unimaginable to those spoilt in riches like us here in Australia. I’ve never been to Brazil, but the tales I’ve been told from those that have are the kind that never leave you.

SURFING FAVELAS is sure to fall into this category. The festival hits Brisbane City’s Botanical Gardens this Friday – and it’s FREE!

There will be food, music and also a screening of LAYA PROJECT. Dedicated to the survivors of the 26th December 2004 Asian tsunami LAYA PROJECT is a collective tribute to the resilience of the human spirit; an inspirational visual and musical journey that crosses borders and was the Winner of our 2008 Best Film Award.

A great way to enjoy your Friday evening and bust loose of those shackles.
