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
World Class Surfers in search of World Class Waves
great chill film
I enjoyed vicariously witnessing wildly beautiful places with sanguine surfing explorers, and the side story's (which develops into THE story) added depth (which is all about caring for strangers) really fixed me happily to the whole tale.
Another critic skewered this film for lack of integrity. If all he gathered from this film is that these surfers were "trust fund babies" on a vacation, then I think the guy is simply disagreeable. Sometimes the people trying anything they can think of to make a difference seem silly to people whose efforts have never reached beyond the criticism of others.
