Often it’s easier to throw something away, to watch it float off until it becomes a speck on the horizon.
The stormy waters of the Western Cape are full of precious things jettisoned by those desperate to stay afloat. Discarded, left to drift away, carried off by the tides, until they either wash ashore or sink under the weight of the water.
Flotsam follows a man fighting to calm the maelstrom in his own mind. Risking everything, he jumps overboard and drifts – unmoored – on strange currents which drag him away from reality.
Directed by 2016 Standard Bank Ovation Award winner Sam Pennington (Falling Off the Horn) and featuring Ryan Napier (Death of a Clown).
