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 Great Documentary May 22, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am using this film in my AP World history class due to all the global issues that it touches on, all under the guise of a surf competition. This film touches on a nation struggling to balance tradition with modernity while exploring local political divisions, poverty and the division of wealth, race and ethnicity, women's rights and gender equality, accessibility to food and resources, and of course the struggles of competing to become a professional surfer in a country with little to no acknowledgment from the global surf community. It is a powerful film and great for introducing these global issues to my students.
