A group of feral surfers and modern day explorers embark on a journey to search for one of the world's last undiscovered waves in the journalist dead zone island of New Guinea. Their adventure becomes all too real as they encounter real life cannibals, discover human rights atrocities and expose an unethical mining corporation. This unique, visually stunning film craves an international spotlight as it brings to light one of the world's least documented places on earth. Isolated features never before seen footage of an ancient aboriginal culture as well as one of the most epic wave discoveries of the past 20 years. Already being lauded as Endless Summer meets The Cove, the film is guaranteed to cause international controversy and hopefully spark the change to save lives. Written by
I admit I didn't watch it until the end. But that was because I became bored with one too many scenes of native children playing in the surf, feral surfers showing children how to surf, ruminations about us all living together happily, surfing on low waves as they search for the big wave. A lady alluded to the fact that genocide is going on in the country and that it's being kept secret. But that has been known for a few years especially with the growth of the internet. Actually more inclusion of the human rights violations mentioned in the Netflix promo probably would have helped break up the drowsy inducing scenes of the hip young Westerners interfacing with their native hosts but as I said I finally couldn't take it anymore. Maybe at the end they found the big wave I don't know by then a wave of sleep had overtaken me.
