Last Hope

Three amazing bands bring sixteen original short films to life in a night devoted to the freedom of the open water and the people who live in its spirit when Last Hope comes to Brisbane Powerhouse on Wednesday 25 August.

The Windy Hills, Holly Throsby and Machine Translations take the stage as creators Andrew Kidman, Aaron Curnow and a selection of noted filmmakers elevate the traditional surf film into an artistic vision, treading deep to the heart of the subculture.
A unique meeting of music and film, Last Hope appeals to surfers and non-surfers alike and is a collage dedicated to the vast and infinite beauty of the sea.
Kidman and band, The Windy Hills, have been touring Last Hope successfully throughout Australia and the US, including a sold-out sitting at the New York Surf Festival. This performance is the first time the already mind-blowing soundtrack will be augmented by the presence of Holly Throsby and J. Walker of Machine Translations, live on stage.
A renowned surf filmmaker (Litmus, Glass Love), Andrew Kidman has always written and performed his own soundtracks. His music has come to the fore recently, earning his band, The Windy Hills, gigs at Splendour in the Grass, Mullumbimby Music Festival and the Perth International Arts Festival.
Contributing filmmakers include; Albert Falzon (Morning of the Earth), Richard Kenvin (Hydrodynamica), Monty Webber, Patrick Trefz (Thread), John Frank (Litmus), Michele Lockwood (Kids) and Andrew Kidman. As well as the headline musical acts, music is also supplied by Smog, Sufjan Stevens, Dirty Three, Explosions in the Sky, My Morning Jacket, Vetiver and Mogwai.
Last Hope sold out at the Perth International Arts Festival – don’t miss out. Get lost in the vastness of vintage footage, moody winter waves and very cool music.
