Decades ago, someone left a surfboard behind on the
beach near a remote village in Papua New Guinea. The inhabitants had no
knowledge of the sport at the time, but today they are among the world's most
skilled competitors, and surfing is essential to their society and culture.
Adam Pesce's documentary Splinters (2011) is both a fascinating
ethnographic case study and an inspirational sports story. It screens tonight -
with a live performance from surf rock outfit Tsunami Of Sound
