Finding Joe is an exploration of famed mythologist Joseph Campbell’s studies and their continuing impact on our culture. Through interviews with visionaries from a variety of fields interwoven with enactments of classic tales by a sweet and motley group of kids, the film navigates the stages of what Campbell dubbed The Hero’s Journey: the challenges, the fears, the dragons, the battles, and the return home as a changed person. Rooted in deeply personal accounts and timeless stories, Finding Joe shows how Campbell’s work is relevant and essential in today’s world and how it provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life – or as Campbell would simply state, how to “follow your bliss”.

And, as the same suggests, it goes beyond simply providing a description of one’s character traits, to offering insights into the timeless question asked by so many of us, “What am I here to do?”

Oliver’s signature nostalgic story telling is something to look forward to once again.

See you there!

Stones followers can expect to hear all their favourites, like ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’, ‘Honky Tonk Woman’ and ‘Wild Horses’ and even a few they’ve never heard before.
“They blew my mind when I heard them in 1994, and I must have played that tape (back in the day we bought music on tape…) all day, every day,” says bassist Wouter Reyneke.
To drummer Jean Marais, his first experience with ‘Gimme Shelter’ was one of ‘somewhat contentment in the ominous melody of the intro, rooted in the uneasiness we all sometimes have to face’.
Probably the biggest Stones fan in the group is guitarist Jacques Groenewald (Jake Gunn). “The Stones were the first band to grab my attention at a very young age. Two guitar players complementing each other, or ‘the ancient form of weaving’, as Keith and Ronnie call it. In the
end it’s all just rock ‘n’ roll… but I like it.”

Watershed – structured around singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Craig Hinds who has always felt he is a man with a positive message to convey and after teaching high school for two years while playing his own material out in smaller venues Craig decided to take the opportunity to form a band and make his voice and songs heard across the world.
Watershed’s travels have led them to perform at the prestigious South by South West Music festival in Austin Texas and Canadian Music week to various dates across Europe where their music is particularly well received in Germany, Austria and Switzerland after a radio DJ on holiday in South Africa heard “Indigo Girl” and thought it would enchant his listeners. He was absolutely right. The play listing of the song on the local German station quickly built momentum and lead to them to be picked up by EMI Germany who released “In The Meantime” and every album & single since.
Working with various producer’s the band had the opportunity to hone all the facets that make up a great album and the result is their ﬁnest work to date. The new album “Watch the Rain” tips the hat to the new-age country sound while still remaining grounded in the cultured acoustic rock that Watershed is known and loved for and the ﬁrst single off the album “Magical Energy” is already building momentum on the local South African charts. While the term Watershed is universally used to describe a turning point, a lesser known use is in broadcasting ﬁeld where it is used to describe the transition time when adult content can be shown and maybe now that’s a better ﬁt for a band that has matured and realised the strength and depth of their sound and trusted in their process and abilities. Watershed are 15 years in the making and nowhere near ready to stop.
