:: Spotlight :: Bondi Tsunami now screening

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Bondi Tsunami, the first Japanese surfing road movie in Australia, follows the psychedelic adventures of four punked up Manga inspired Japanese surfers; Shark,Yuto, Kimiko and Gunja Man as they travel up the magical east coast of Australia in a 1961 EK Holden.

All that is real is surreal in the land of Oz; the satirical comic book world of Bondi Tsunami explores the sublime, spectacular dreamscape of Shark (Taki Abe), a chain smoking asthmatic Japanese surfer cowboy in denial of his own consciousness.

Described as Kabuki meets MTV meets the Wizard of Oz meets Monkey Magic, Bondi Tsunami is a bizarre travelogue, rich in vivid colour and mesmerising cinematography, featuring a `must have' soundtrack.
The film presents a spectacular fusion of Australian and Japanese Pop Iconography; a conceptual work born of the MTV world, where the `nothingness' of zen, surfing, landscape, fashion and music video meet, Featuring a stunning japanese cast, Bondi Tsunami is a stylish, sensory feast unlike anything you've seen before!

Now Showing for a limited season in Sydney before heading off on a national tour.
