If you haven’t seen this film yet, do yourself a favour and watch this genre-bending documentary inspired by surfing and Elands Bay on the west coast.
For ten days and nights, in September 2016, a community of surfers, artists, conservationists, musicians, chefs, mystics, creatives and foragers created a studio on the beach in Elands Bay and set about the 10Days&10nights project.
The outcome of this project is the film “Deep Blue \ Middle C“, an ode to the wes-kus through the eyes of a surfer, living and breathing Elands Bay.
“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.” – The Feral Family
Directed by Bryan Little, this is a must watch for any surfer and lover of Elands Bay and the west coast.
“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 ‘
