Editorial Reviews

In the 1980s, a pilot left behind a surfboard in a remote seaside village in Papua New Guinea, a land known for cargo cults and cannibalism. Twenty years later, the sport of surfing is splintering Vanimo Village. For select surfing talent, it's a way out to compete in the "whiteman's" world. Personal and clan rivalries emerge as hopefuls claw for this prestigious position. The countercultural sport is also a unique catalyst for social change as women gain newfound status in a violent, patriarchal community.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. June 22, 2012
By S. Maki
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is one of the most personal, subtle yet utterly gripping films I have ever seen. Presented with no agenda or intrusion from its maker, this story is allowed to tell itself - and it does so brilliantly. A real work of art and yet so very accessible. Really special film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Documentary I've Seen in a Long Time July 21, 2014
By Marye
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was utterly moved by this film -- to the point that I'm writing a review for the first time in hopes that others will see it, and to let the filmmaker know how much it was appreciated. As a documentary, as a film, as a narrative, Splinters is so well done, expertly crafted, the highest form of documentary film making -- weaves an honest narrative together, perfectly paced, without a hint of agenda from the filmmaker--simply takes you into the heart and soul of the people in the film, and the plot unfolds, powerfully, from them just living their lives -- a pretty magical thing thing to accomplish as a documentary filmmaker. Each person in the film has his/her own voice, is allowed to be who they are within the film, the environment itself is a character, the ocean, surfing itself. All edited together seamlessly, beautifully. You don't need to be a surfer to enjoy and learn from this film. Having said that, if you surf, are an ocean lover, a traveler, or are simply interested in the world and its people beyond your own backyard, this film will engage you and move you. This is high quality work, and art, and I hope this director makes more films, because we will all be better for it. Adam Pesce's stamp is on the film, but only in that you can tell he made it from his heart. Just see it.
