A genre bending documentary film inspired by the west coast of South Africa.
“I don’t have a tribal dance,
there are no manhood rituals for me.
Sitting round this fire with my friends,
surfing these West Coast waves,
This is my culture.” - J’ bones / ‘ the dronk kreef '
For 10days&10nights we made a studio on the beach, in the Elands Bay dustbowl.
From it our little community of surfers, artists, conservationists, musicians, chefs, mystics and foragers made music with our true selves. Exploring the greatest force on earth : we ate our fill from the wilderness.
One of the outcomes of the 10Days&10nights project was the film
"Deep Blue \ Middle C"
A film from an alternate reality - that is to be a surfer, living and breathing, on the west coast of South Africa.
It is the place we go when we get dumped or loose a loved one or just need a re-fill of wilderness and the raw joy of life..to paddle out and find an acceptable perspective.
To this sanctuary we make pilgrimages, to wash off the dirt of the world.
This film is a homage to this gift we have been given.
With themes of the ocean, spirit, biology, identity, and our natural place in the world, Deep Blue / Middle C is an interwoven story where fiction and non-fiction co-exist; as do memory and dreams.
A wise man recently told me;
"The qualities of the steps to getting somewhere,
are the same as the qualities of being there”.
hope you enjoy it, and don't mind paying the $2,
We really want to make more films and this support means a lot to us.
