Set in the magnificent and untouched ancestral lands of the Wild Coast, The Shore Break is an incredible multi-layered personal story that pits family members against one another in an ultimate battle for retaining a traditional way of life or foregoing it in the name of development.

The family feud between two cousins is tearing their rural community apart. Nonhle wants to maintain a traditional Pondo lifestyle and preserve the magnificent landscape of the Wild Coast. Madiba feels large-scale development is a more realistic way to bring progress to one of South Africa’s poorest and most undeveloped regions. When a mining company is interested in mining their beach sand for titanium and government wants to route a new highway through their extensive rural communal lands, Madiba decides to collaborate with them, believing these developments will bring decent infrastructure and work opportunities. Fearing for the future of her family’s home, farmland, graves and ability to live off the land, Nonhle feels compelled to step up as a community leader and resist her cousin’s plans. She seeks the support of their traditional King and Queen, the monarchs of the Pondo people.

Directed by Ryley Grunenwald and produced by Grunenwald and Odette Geldenhuys, The Shore Break has been featured in festivals worldwide and is the winner of multiple awards.
