With just a little more than two weeks to go Ombak Bali is counting down towards opening night on August 23. South East Asia’s one and only surf film festival will once again screen the latest and the best in surf films and documentaries.
Kicking off on opening night is the world premiere of Indonesian documentary “Water from the Moon” by Arya Subyakto, in which a group of pro surfers and film makers venture deep into the Sumatran jungle to surf the Bono, a powerful river wave which is feared by the local community for it’s devastating power. The main feature of the evening is the Asian premiere of ‘Surfing & Sharks’ by Julian Watson, a fascinating, adrenalin packed film that delves into the secrets and stories that underlie the shark stigma in South Africa. Directors of both films will be present.
With the most eclectic selection of films ever to hit the festival, expect three starry nights filled with big waves, epic adventures and personal crusades. The complete line up of films is available on www.ombakbali.com
La Plancha!! Seminyak’s most happening venue is once again hosting this year’s festival with a big screen right on the beach. Starts nightly at sunset August 23 – 25.
All screenings are free.
