A poetic homage to Australia’s early surf-culture with unearthed footage set to an original soundtrack.

You Should Have Been Here Yesterday combines hundreds of hours of lovingly restored 16mm footage with a salt-infused soundscape by Headland. This cinematic poem tells the story of a wild community who took off up the coast and discovered a whole new way to live. Going back to the never-before-seen camera reels to ask the question – what do we keep and what do we leave behind? Featuring Tim Winton, Wayne Lynch, Bob McTavish, Albe Falzon, Evelyn Rich, Maurice Cole and many more. Inspired by Moonage Daydream and Jen Peedom’s Mountain.

Some scenes have a strobing effect that may affect some viewers

Please note Red Carpet starts at 4.00pm with Jolyon Hoff and Hamish Ludbrook-Gibbs in attendance.
