Watch: A Portrait of Laurie Towner
In A Portrait of Laurie Towner filmmaker Gary Parker wanted to make a film that matched the subject. A simple enough premise but one that's often overlooked by young auteurs looking to make a celluloid statement.
So if you think the film is relaxed and understated....well, that's exactly the way it's supposed to be.
The surfing scenes are, of course, where the boldest statements are made, and that's always been the case with Laurie Towner.
