Kalunga – Feature Documentary

The word ‘sea’ in Kimbundo is ‘Kalunga’. It refers to the Atlantic Ocean which rages against the Angolan coast, however ‘Kalunga’ is entwined with Angola’s history and also means ‘immensity’ and ‘death’.  Now three international surfers accept the challenge: to travel the coast of Angola, from north to south, exploring a historic hinterland hidden by war. In doing so Alex, Chloé and Emiliano will know a country few have seen. Between remote places and unlikely adventures they’ll find a small community of young Angolan surfers: a fearless generation who dream about the Angolan future and will change the meaning of ‘Kalunga’.  Theirs is a journey coinciding with a nation’s, a journey where surfing shows there is more beyond the waves, and reveals itself as an experience of social integration, cultural fusion and symbiosis with nature.
