This beautifully designed coffee table book commemorates Morning of the Earth’s 50th Anniversary and showcases 170 brilliantly remastered images from the film.

See Australia, Bali and Hawaii before rampant development took over; see the wide angled point of views that didn’t make the film; see legendary scenes like the surf discovery of Uluwatu, Bali; and travel back to the early 70’s where country soul was life, and surfing was too. The book is swiss-bound for a truly immersive lay-flat experience, presenting crystal clear imagery on uncoated paper stock that transports the viewer back to a land before time.

The book includes a 40-page introduction with Albert Falzon and Torren Martyn, a foreword by David Elfick, and essays by Sean Doherty, Jamie Brisick, Simon Jones and Falzon, who share intimate stories, dive deep into the history of the film, reveal rare never-before-seen archival treasures, and explore the early development of an artist and the filmmaker’s journey.

Comes with Vimeo codes to watch the newly 4K remastered Morning of the Earth, and RE-MOTE: The Lost Reels a 40-minute film cut from the never-before-seen outtakes.
