This activity is completed or marked as expired


Meet Dondo, a teenage surfer on the Isle of Lewis, grappling with the unresolved grief of his father’s mysterious disappearance at sea. As he navigates the challenges of school, his crush on Sas, and the arrival of an eccentric new minister, Dondo’s world is suddenly rocked by cosmic visions.

Louis McCartney’s portrayal of Dondo exudes a lopsided charm, complemented by Ella Lily Hyland’s fizzy portrayal of the coolest girl in school, Sas. Former BAFTA nominee Johnny Barrington’s anticipated debut feature is an idiosyncratic coming-of-age story that captures the mystique of the Hebridean landscape, where the mundane coexists with the otherworldly, and mourning intertwines with religious exploration and teenage kicks. Hannah Peel’s score adds an extra layer of bold creativity. Prepare for an unexpected Scottish cinematic journey where surf’s up and the mystical beckons.
