First Water

The film considers the complex interplay between the individual psyche, the social fabric, and the arid land which sustains life in the Karoo. Local Prince Albert residents tell of divergent lives: of devotion to caregiving beyond the bounds of family; of the philosopher farmer's relationship with the land; of losing parts of oneself; and of friendship whilst at the mercy of a system that is failing. Eerstewater was shot on location in the town of Prince Albert, Western Cape, South Africa. In a place where music is as much part of of the story as the harsh karoo landscape, local Prince Albert musicians provide the backdrop to the stories of: Maggie Hendricks (106), Pat Marincowitz (93), Piet Cordier (60), Jaffie (81) & Tienie (84) Pieterson, and Henry Prins (15) & Wilfred Maarman (16). Under guidance of the Depth Leadership Trust, a supplementary local crew was trained and employed for the production phase of the film. The film is based on the book: Beneath - Exploring the Unconscious in Individuals. Beneath is a comprehensive introduction to the subject of depth psychology, a discipline which studies the part of the human psyche that is not immediately available to conscious thought, but nevertheless seems to have a profound impact on human behaviour. It attempts to understand the deepest roots of our engagement with the world. It explains the logic of mental structuring and resultant behaviour in an accessible way.
