The Shore Break (2014) is a documentary film (90 / 52 min).

The struggle of extremes plays out in Pondoland’s Wild Coast: an exquisite backdrop for a high-stakes saga, which casts a new light, and accompanying shadows, across the uneven landscape of South Africa. An Australian mining company’s efforts to win over the local communities of Amadiba pits local tour-guide, Nonhle, against her opportunistic cousin in a vicious battle for the hearts and minds of their rural neighbours. Through this nuanced drama a parallel story of political intrigue is interwoven – a plot to oust the Pondo Royal family. A lilting score by local artist Ntombe Thongo and evocative sand animation interspersed counterpoint the drama. As self-interest clashes with morals and ideals, simple scenarios betray a deeper subtext of subterranean problems, hidden like the contested titanium, biding their time to explode.

The Centre for Civil Society (CCS) at UKZN is running a petition, which would also be useful to bring to the attention of the delegates:
