Westerly: A Man, A Woman, An Enigma is the story of surfing superstar Peter Drouyn’s decision to undergo gender-reassignment surgery. The project is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter and, as of this writing, has just two weeks to make $44,000.
Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Matt Sweeney, responsible for 2005’s Superwolf, are writing the music for the movie, so theoretically a contribution to the film is a contribution to a new Billy/Sweeney full-length. The Kickstarter page doesn’t mention Superwolf, so who knows how the score will sound, but that album is one of my favorite Will Oldham-related projects and I’d love to hear what they’d do with this movie.
