DEEP END (2018)

U.S. Premiere

This heartwarming South African spin on BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM substitutes surfing for soccer to explore the coming-of-age journey of Sunitha Patel (Carishma Basday), a young woman from a traditional Gujarat family in Durban who aspires to be a surf champion. Surfing is simply not acceptable for a good Indian girl of marrying age, but on the beaches of Durban, Sunitha discovers a passion for the waves that she cannot ignore. Challenging expectations and bucking the norms she was raised with, Sunitha must find a way to take her own path. Official Selection, 2018 Durban International Film Festival. DIR/SCR Eubulus Timothy; PROD Jacintha Timothy. South Africa, 2018, color, 90 min. In English. NOT RATED
