The Meeting Place, a 40-minute documentary which its makers say ‘explores the journey Byron Bay has taken, and introduces the characters that have enriched the region’s culture’ premieres tonight at Byron Bay Community Centre.
There will be two screenings – at 7pm and 8.30pm – and the night will be hosted by Tommy Franklin. There will be live music by local Garrett Kato and Canadian Vince Vaccaro, who together created the film’s soundtrack.
The Meeting Place is the newest documentary from the locally based production company Rest Your Eyes Production (http://restyoureyesproduction.com), run by Jonatan and Sebastian Lundmark and Oliver Certa.
‘The film takes the viewer on a deeply personal journey into the history and life of Byron Bay as its history gradually unfolds through inspiring stories from locals, hippies, surfers, travellers, Indigenous folk and people from all walks of life,’ say the filmmakers.
After the screenings a party will be held upstairs on the Community Centre’s balcony where food and drinks will be served, accompanied by live music. For more information about reserving and/or purchasing tickets, visit www.byroncentre.com.au, call 6685 6807 or email [email protected].
