Win 'Bra Boys' on DVD ... TODAY!
After achieving record breaking status in Australia, attending film festivals around the world and successfully playing to sold out audiences in the United States, 'Bra Boys' will arrive in stores on August 12, 2008. The DVD will be priced to own at $19.99.
'Bra Boys' is a documentary film narrated by Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe about the real-life brotherhood, murder and family loyalties of Australia’s warring gangs --- the surfing “Bra Boys” of Maroubra, a beach side suburb of Sydney.
Written, directed and produced by Sunny Abberton, himself a childhood resident of Maroubra’s public housing projects, 'Bra Boys' traces the cultural evolution of the much maligned --- and tattooed --- youthful surfing community, and in particular the Abberton brothers: Sunny, Koby, Jai and Dakota, one charged with murdering a Sydney “standover man” (Australian slang for an extortionist who uses physical violence, or threats, to extract payment on behalf of another), another pursuing a professional surf career but charged as an accessory in his brother’s murder trial, another trying to hold the family together, and the youngest brother --- whose sole inheritance is his siblings’ national notoriety.
Using archival shots, blended with new footage and interviews, 'Bra Boys' presents a dynamic portrait of the current “surf vision,” a story that is at once compassionate, compelling and confrontational: fights for against-the-odds success, predictable failures. Yet, ultimately, the film’s narrative illustrates how even amidst the burdens of a stigmatized legacy, a new generation can hope for better.
“From Russell Crowe’s brilliant narration to the countless fans the boys have made all over the world, 'Bra Boys' has touched everyone who has seen it,” says Berkela co-founder Jason Bergh. We couldn’t be more enthusiastic to release the DVD and continue supporting the Abbertons’ mission to help kids through their inspirational story.”
In addition to the DVD release, Bra Boys The Soundtrack will be released by Original Signal Records on iTunes on July 15th, 2008.
