AN ODE TO THE WESKUS (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 ‘


FLY ON THE WALL FILMS 2017

DIRECTOR: BRYAN LITTLE

DURATION: 60 Min

A genre bending documentary – a personal project from director Bryan Little he describes as – “A glorious home video from an alternate reality, that is to be a surfer living and breathing on the west coast of South Africa – to this sanctuary we make pilgrimages, to wash off the dirt of the world.”

For 10days&10nights we made a studio on the beach, from it our little community of surfers, artists, musicians, chefs, mystics and foragers made music with our true selves. Exploring the greatest force on earth : we ate our fill from the wilderness.

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”.
