FEATURING:

THE HUNTER
Dir. Gabriel Bron. 16 mins. France, South Africa. 2024
A journey about reconnecting with our predatory instinct, tracking swells up and down the South African coast, fueled only by the allure of catching the perfect wave.

YAMA
Dir. Lucy Small, Maddie Meddings. 23 mins. UK. 2023
Yama follows Australian surfer and activist Lucy Small as she travels to Ghana to meet with a group of pioneering female surfers and skaters. Once a stronghold of the transatlantic slave trade and with a history of Atlantic aquatic surf culture that precedes colonial invasion, this is a story of a reclamation and joy. Aiming to tell a story that challenges the representations that many African nations are commonly subjected to in western media, Yama begins in the bustling city of Accra and travels to the wave rich coastline where there are communities driving the budding Ghanaian modern surf scene. The Fantes are the people who populate the area where female surfers live. Yama is their name for the wooden boats that still cross Ghana’s shoreline today. The soundtrack features artists for tiher connection to were selected for West Africa and who have advocated for women’s rights.

KEEP IT A SECRET
Dir. Sean Duggan. Ireland. 56 mins. 2023
Keep It A Secret recounts the inspiring true story of the dawn of Irish surfing and how the sport’s brave pioneers found peace in the surf during the most violent years of The Troubles conflict.
