Morning of the Earth is not a surfing film. The surfing is just the narrative that pulls it along - a fantasy of surfers living in three unspoiled lands and playing in nature's oceans. The story of a surfer, a filmmaker and a lifetime of adventure.

Albert Falzon's masterpiece premiered at the Manly Silver Screen Theatre on 25th February 1972. Featuring stunning surfing sequences from Bali, Angourie, Kirra, Oahu, Maui and elsewhere, the film has been universally acclaimed as perhaps the greatest surfing film ever made. But it is much more than that.

This edition updates the deleted previous Fuse boxset and now includes a second DVD, The Life and Films of Alby Falzon. This second DVD can be found elsewhere as a stand alone documentary, but with a retail price of $30.00 plus.

Also included is a 52 page bound booklet featuring new essays focussing on the film's influence on a new generation discovering the film's timeless appeal.

"Morning Of The Earth shows the natural beauty of surfing. It is why it has lasted the way it has.... We were just filming how we lived" - Albert Falzon (SMH 2009)
