May 11, 2011

This film looks stunning, but be warned, the trailer contains graphic content.

An Australian pilot left a surfboard in a village on Papua New Guinea's coast. Thirty years later, PNG's holding a national surfing championship. We picked up the story of how one surfboard changed a village forever from Steve Casimiro's Adventure Journal. For a better understanding of the trailer, check out Casimiro's interview with Adam Pesce, the director of Splinters.
