Filmed on location in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and the Caribbean, Dear Suburbia, is the latest release from Kai Neville and is the follow up to his previous films Modern Collective and Lost Atlas. It is a high-performance, location-based surf film set against exotic landscapes, objects and personalities juxtaposed with the traditions of suburban life. Spontaneity versus routine. The unknown versus the familiar. An interpretation of our lifestyle, culture, riding waves, traveling the world — a pirouette into the absurdity of it all. The result is a graceful, often schizophrenic glimpse at modern life with a surfboard and a passport.
IN MODERN COLLECTIVE, KAI NEVILLE BROUGHT ON THE SIX MOST BRILLIANT PERFORMERS SURFING COULD MUSTER, AND THE ACADEMY APPROVED.
FOR HIS NEW COLLABORATION, KAI RALLIES A DOZEN MORE SURFERS — INCLUDING THE ORIGINAL SIX — LOST ATLAS, A LOCATION BASED FILM SHOT IN UNDER 12 MONTHS WILL TAKE THE VIEWER IN SEARCH OF THE UNKNOWN PLEASURES OF SURFING TODAY.
THIS IS POSTMODERNISM.
THIS IS YOUTH ON THE RUN.
