In 2003 director Adam Pesce stumbled on an image of Papua New Guinean boy surfing on a broken surfboard and his subsequent curiosity drove him to the island in search of a unique story. After multiple trips, 7 months of shooting and several years editing, Splinters is the story of a remote seaside community in Papa New Guinea and 4 local surfers who compete in the country’s first-ever national surfing title in hopes their surfboards will carry them to a better life. The film will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next week.
