The special cinema events of LAST PARADISE will include introductory talks and Q and A sessions. The Sydney show will be introduced by Barton Lynch (Cremorne 2 June), Peter McCabe (Newcastle 5 June) and Wayne 'Rabbit' Bartholomew (Coolangatta, 12 June). Allan Byrne tells a fascinating story in Last Paradise about innovation with George Greenough and the greats, through having been part of the journey from the very beginning.

Before his passing Allan Byrne was still regarded by his friends in Hawaii as the most consistent visitor to the North shore since 1970s. But there is more to AB's story of innovation than meets the eye. Allan Byrne was a generous sharer of his discoveries, something that is very rare in the modern patent-bound world.

Their story of innovation features in Last Paradise. In the unfolding of LAST PARADISE we discover that this spirit of open collaboration championed by these surfers needs to be rebirthed to benefit the worlds largest scientific projects if we if we at all to have a chance of saving this planet and our civilization from the scourge of fossil fuel energy.
