SURFER: TEEN CONFRONTS FEAR

The burgeoning cult movie phenomenon returns to The Royal this August!

“As with Tommy Wiseau’s midnight movie favourite, SURFER is a self-funded indie filled with non-sequiturs, passionate performances, unexplained diversions, and bizarre dream logic.” – Grant Pardee, VICE

Shot over nearly 11 years by a physics professor at the University of Southern California, this bizarre tale about a teenager overcoming his fear of surfing has been steadily accruing a reputation at international Midnight screenings as the cult film successor to Tommy Wiseau’s THE ROOM and Neil Breen’s FATEFUL FINDINGS. Chock-full of hyperbolic monologues and hypnotic montages of – you guessed it – surfing, Burke manages to transcend everything you think you’ve come to expect from outsider cinema and hang-ten’s towards an undeniably arresting and hilarious sublime. Catch the wave on August 11th and prepare your cerebrum for a total wipe-out.
