Oh, cyclocross. You think you have a lock on weird? Think again. The singlespeed worlds are every bit as nonconformist as all those other nonconformist cultural gatherings, only this time they were in South Africa and director James Walsh was there to bring his twisted eye to the event. This short film, called Kunye, is inspired by T.S. Eliot’s poem, Little Gidding, but that serves mostly as a jumping off point for even more weirdness — trippy camera angles, tweaked color, lots of impressionistic renderings. Man, I don’t know what else to tell you. There are bikes and zombies and burning grass and tattoos and aeroplanes. Trust T.S. and just check it out.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
