Ice Board

“Ice Board”, conceptualised and directed by Conn Bertish (and co-directed by Zaheer Goodman-Bhyat) is a short film that tells the story Conn Bertish’s remarkable visual art creation, The Ice Board.

Bertish, a Capetonian surfer, activist and creative director came up with the innovative idea to highlight the plight of our oceans, by shaping a life-sized surfboard sculpted entirely from ice. The “Ice Board” was displayed at Depasco Café in Kloof Street, Cape Town, on Wednesday 9 December 2009. The melting board served as a visual poem, underlining the global warming crisis in a powerful way.
