Tony “Harro” Harrington has been filming and photographing big waves and big mountains for most of his life. On Monday at Belly Up, the famed Australian adventurer will screen his latest surf film, “iON the Barrel Vol. 2.”

Harrington will introduce the film and share some short films from his legendary freeride event, the World Heli Challenge, as well as his inspirational surf documentary.

He spent most of the past year chasing waves around the globe to create this homage to hollow waves and the people who ride them. The film is fresh from its premiere at the Triple Crown of Surfing in Hawaii. It its part of a planned trilogy.

The film is the second in a series that began in 2013. Harrington and his team have been travelling from Hawaii to California and Indonesia chasing waves and then driving thousands of miles across the Australian desert and back while documenting the whole adventure. The result is this latest film packed with awe-inspiring surf moments and plenty of colorful stories from along the road.

“The film has the barrel at its heart,” Harrington said in a statement. “It’s the Holy Grail for surfers and what keeps us searching and surfing and what drives me to make these films. It’s also a celebration of the characters, the beautiful places and the stories we find along the way, which makes it richer and gives it wide appeal.”

The film features a lineup of well-known surfing names including Dave Macaulay, Dave Kalama, Jamie O’Brien, Reef McIntosh, Mick Fanning, Dino Adrian, Tai Graham and John John Florence.
