Description: “Woza” tells the story of an African surfer who has been taken as a lover by the African water spirit 'Mami Wata.' It features 22 year-old Transkei surfer, Avuyile Ndamase.
The film tells the story of a young South African surfer taken by the power of the waves. As the noise and chaos of city life cloud his mind -- race cars drifting across dusty streets, people dancing in clubs and kids giving shade -- he finds peace in the water, while he's riding a wave or biding time until the next swell comes along. This film beautifully captures the new 'wave' of African surf culture, whilst paying homage to African spirituality and belief. We believe the continent has a lot to offer the surfing and design community, and our branded film demonstrates this.
Entry Summary:
"Mami Wata” is West African pidgin English literally meaning 'Mama Water’... 'Mother Ocean’ if you prefer. From Madagascar to Morocco, Liberia to Mozambique, Mami Wata is the legend of the African water spirit that appears in the shape of a mermaid. It is said that those who she takes for her lovers, return with a new spirit and become more successful and good looking.
