About “Sian Sessions”
Off the back of the success of the award winning travel piece, South to Sian, Deus Ex Machina and Garage Productions present a new alluring Indonesian surf odyssey starring Harrison Roach, Zye Norris and friends. With over 300 hours of footage filmed during the making of South To Sian, the door was left wide open to produce another world class surf film. Featuring an epic lineup of previously unseen waves handpicked by Harrison Roach, covering 4,000km from West Nusa Tengarra to North Sumatra, Sian Sessions is a quest for adventure which will have you quitting your day job and booking a one way ticket to the land of Bintangs & barrels.
About “South To Sian”
What began as a three-month trip to a collection of surf breaks off the beaten track turned into a two-year odyssey of exploration, injury, companionship and 4,000km of two-wheeled, single-finned escape from the the real-world burdens of modern life. Harrison Roach and Zye Norris pack their bags, a diverse quiver of boards, two bikes and a 50-dollar tent into a 1970s Land Rover and embark on an epic quest from the southern reaches of Bali, through the Indonesian archipelago to Northern Sumatra’s isolated Lagundri Bay. On boards, on bikes, by boat and four-wheel drive, the pair’s journey is to discover if, in these days of GPS and WiFi, the dream of a true pioneering surf adventure is still alive.
South To Sian recently won Best Surf Movie at the Florida Surf Film Festival, Best Cinematography at Lisbon Surf Film Festival, and has been officially selected for numerous other festivals with hopefully more awards on the way!
