LS/FF 2012 WINNER
SPIRIT OF THE FESTIVAL: THE AFRICA PROJECT, Dir: Jason Hearn, SA
European Premiere. South Africa filmmaker Jason Hearn scoured the east and west coasts of the continent in search of the true African surfing story and found it. Featuring the likes of Jordy Smith, Davey Weare, big wave legend Twiggy Baker plus freestyling Roosta Lange, and journeying through South Africa, Morocco, Senegal, Namibia and beyond The Africa Project captures the beauty, culture, surf, people and true potential of the African coastline from the inside out. It is a film to stir the soul and stoke the wanderlust and showcasing some of the longest barrels you’ve ever seen, it’ll have you packing our bags and heading south for the winter.
