A Day Late and A Dollar Short
Length / 48mins
Dale Egan is a man who refuses to conform to conventional life in a contemporary society. This biopic follows Dales journey from being a 70's surfing prodigy to 80's punk pioneer of Luna Tech (an avant-garde furniture store/arts enclave in Sydney), which led to a decade of drug use, creativity and self exploration. Sacrificing potential wealth, family and security Dale perseveres with a surfer’s life and philosophy loyal to a less complicated era and reclaiming the artefacts of a disposable society.
The film challenges its audience to reflect on the way chance, consequence and values shape a life, its opportunities, losses and moments of grace.
Ben Cregan, Marcus Arruzza & Dale Egan
