Audience Reviews for Splinters
As a surfer and a fan of surf films, this is one of the best documentaries on surfing I have ever seen. The stories behind the lives of these villagers are so well told, and the areas in which the director chose to focus gave an added understanding of the experiences within the village of Vanimo. The best part is feeling the universal joy that unites surfers around the world, from all walks of life. Adam Pesce captures it beautifully.
Wow. Adam Pesce has done an amazing job. With Splinters, Pesce manages to show what you can do with a documentary. Stakes are high. People's futures hang in the balance. This film hurts, and laughs, and washes over you with the realisation that you've seen something unexpectedly memorable. Far more than a surf documentary. Highly recommended.
