Bombora-- the story of Australian surfing( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A definitive K-12 of surfing in Australia, Bombora tells the story of Australian beach culture through our surfing champions, writers, pioneers, entrepreneurs, mavericks, legends, drop-outs and drop-ins. The two-part series follows the rise of surfing and its culture in Australia, using archival footage and classic Australian music to illustrate its growing importance in Australian society in the 20th century and beyond. From the time we learnt to bodysurf, to our first attempts on boards, to Duke Kahanamoku's 1914 visit which kicked off surfing's roll to popularity, Australians have taken the surf and made it our own, spawning international legends such as Midget Farrelly, Nat Young and seven-time world champion Layne Beachley, along with global surfwear brands. Set against a changing world, Bombora follows the K-12 of surfing from its maverick early days, through three significant wars and a depression, the development of surf clubs and the ensuing battles between lifesavers and surfers, the sea-change seeking drug culture of the 1970s and its shift to a cleaner, more professional sport in the late 1980s. Bombora interviews a rich seam of Australian characters, including our first surf champion Isabel Letham, author and surfer Tim Winton, legendary surfboard shaper Bob McTavish, accidental entrepreneur and Rip Curl founder Doug Warbrick and former world champion surfers Barton Lynch and Wayne Rabbit' Bartholomew. It looks at the rise of women surfers and the explosion of Australian labels including Billabong, Rip Curl and Quiksilver, which helped to cement Australia's position as a global force in international surfing.

Dancing with Dictators( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The film is an observational documentary about Burma from inside. Those outside the country see the election as a sham - for many inside the country including the paper's journalists, this is an opportunity they cannot afford to turn their back on - a chance for a step towards democracy no matter how limited. The film was made with considerable risk to the filmmakers and to the participants. The film-makers' presence during the election does not go unnoticed and four days after the vote they are deported, focussing attention to Dunkley. Shortly afterwards the hardliners strike again and Dunkley is arrested and charged with immigration offences linked to an alleged assault on a woman. He spends seven weeks in Burma's notorious Insein prison before being granted bail and appears in court over 20 times. Once free, he remains commited to regaining control of the newspaper and continuing the fight for freedom of speech in a country he has grown to love."--Container
