Cape Town – Channel24 attended the South African premiere of the doccie, South to Sian at the Labia theatre in Cape Town on Thursday night.
The brainchild of international director of Deus Surf, Dustin Humphrey, the film follows surfers and bike enthusiasts Harrison Roach and Zye Norris as they take on the adventure of a lifetime.
The film started out documenting a trip to a collection of surf breaks off the beaten track, but soon turned into a journey of exploration, companionship and 4000km of two-wheeled, single-finned escape from the real-world burdens of modern life.
Like a modern-day Heart of Darkness, the duo escape the real world, the bills, the jobs and the whirlwinds of society, to take fate by the hand and throw caution to the wind.
With the exotic and captivating backdrop of Indonesia as their canvas, the life-long friends find new meaning to life, breaking down the barriers and constraints imposed by society, setting their own rules and redefining what is possible, if only we take that first leap of faith.
South to Sian is not a surf movie, it isn’t a bike film and it isn’t a travel documentary. It is all of these and more. The film releases worldwide on 1 July.
Here are 7 stills from the flick that will make you want to quit your job and travel the world:
