Between Land and Sea Limited Screenings
Between Land and Sea is not your typical surfing film. There are no sharks, there are no international competitions, and it is cold. Set in Lahinch, on the west coast of Ireland, the documentary spends a year looking at the unlikely home of Europe’s best big-break waves, and the townspeople who live to surf them.
The film focuses on the day-to-day lives of Lahinch locals who spend their free time surfing along the dangerous, rocky Irish coastline when they aren’t trying to make a living off the land.
Between Land and Sea also features some of surfing's big names, including Irish surfer Ollie O’Flaherty, Australian surf journalist Ben Mondy and Hawaiian surfer Shane Dorian, and shines a light on a surfing culture very different to what you'll see at Torquay or Bells Beach.
The film's limited release happens on the first weekend of June; there are screenings each day at 4pm at both the Classic Cinema in Elsternwick and the Lido in Hawthorn.
