What would happen if we unplug ourselves and get lost without any electronic devices. We might, breath by breath, enjoy the moment and step by step, observe the land. These both surfer girls went back to essentials in order to be lorn.
« The sound of silence » is about Lee-ann Curren and Bianca Buitendag exploring backcountry's coast of South Africa, being on a quest to find blank waves, without smartphones nor wifi. Nowadays, it’s sounds crazy to live without those things which occupy the most of our days. By wanting to capture our best moments, friends, meals…anything actually in our smartphone, we are just missing the most important, what is to live simply the moment.
These girls understood that and tried to live a few days the same way as during the good old days. They speak about adventure in its purest way by showing beautiful landscapes of Eastern Cape, where they are looking for remote surfing spots. They have one goal during this journey: discovering the feeling of being lorn.
During 10 days, these girls traveled without any connected devices, instead their target is to be connected with the land and their inhabitants only.
Through this short-film realized by Dan Mace, you can enjoy an amazing, wild and quiet nature. Lee-Ann kept good memories from this experience, by sharing unique moments with locals, learning more about their culture and traditions and respecting the south-african wildlife. This short-film will definitely give you something to think about, with a real life-lesson to remember.
