The Occumentary – 25th Anniversary


Talk Story and Q&A with Mark Occhilupo and Jack McCoy



To celebrate the 25th anniversaries of both the legendary Australian surfer Mark Occhilupo’s 1999 ASP World title and the release of the award-winning surf film The Occumentary, filmmaker Jack McCoy and Occhilupo are joining us at Lorne Theatre for a special screening of the film and Q&A. The Occumentary charts Occy’s career, from his dizzying rise to the top of the ASP ratings at the young age of 17, through to his hiatus from competitive surfing in the late ’80s, and his historic comeback in 1999. 

“The best surfing bio-film ever made”

The Surfer‘s Journal

“One of surfing’s most inspirational stories. The comeback to end all comebacks. A classic tribute to a unique character.”

Why You Should See This Film

This is the first time ever that the film is being shown on the big screen, after McCoy completed a full digital remaster for the occasion. The Occumentary instantly became a cult classic when it was released in 1999 and it was the first feature documentary focused on an individual surfer. The soundtrack will transport you right back to late ’90s summers – it features Foo Fighters, Powderfinger, Yothu Yindi, Ed Kuepper and more.
