Mambo

Art Irritates Life

The Idea

This year we’ve had funding approved by the ABC and in collaboration with Bombora Films are shooting the definitive documentary of the iconic 80’s surf label/art movement, Mambo. It’s about how a strange amalgam of people grew out of the music scene and built a surf label that charmed, confounded and insulted just about everyone – particularly the government and the wowsers – and won lifelong fans on the way.

The film has largely been shot at the Monkeys’ Surry Hills premises, and features contributing artists Reg Mombassa, Robert Moore and our very own Scott Dettrick.

Watch out for it on ABC in November 2016. It’s a cracker.
