Inspired by Dion’s home state of Tasmania.
If there’s one man you can trust to transform a cinematic surfing vision from dream into reality it has to be Joe G, the man behind Globe’s catalogue of truly epic surf flicks including Strange Rumblings in Shangri La, Cult of Freedom, Secret Machine, Year Zero, etc.
Dion Agius had one such vision, inspired by the goofyfooter’s return to Tasmania in search of a peaceful life after the grind of living and working in LA, and over the last couple of years, Joe G and Dion have worked together to bring it to life. Dark Hollow is the end result.
With themes surrounding the environmental issues facing both Tasmania’s wilderness and the world in general, the aim of Dark Hollow is not only to showcase the career-best surfing of Dion, but also to generate support in protecting Tasmania's World Heritage areas.
Dion himself will be donating $15,000 to the Bob Brown Foundation to coincide with the release of the film.
The is also a Dark Hollow hard-cover book available here, featuring the work of Nick Green, John Respondek and Dion himself.
