We’ve been waiting on this one for a while. Alex Knost’s full-length surf movie is finally here. And it doesn’t disappoint.
Filmed across Mexico, Baja, Indonesia & France, Tan Madonna is a beautiful experimental mix of a movie, dripping in 16mm grain, wonderfully captured by Nolan Hall, with an original score by Knost and Basque favourite Lee-Ann Curren, playing an intrinsic part. It’s how one would imagine John Cassavetes would direct a surf movie.
At 25 mins, it’s not one to skim through. Make yourself a cuppa, put your phone on airplane mode and enjoy with the sound turned UP!
