Directed by Justin LePera. USA, 2012, 85 mins.

Five world-class surfers travel to remote Papua New Guinea in search of undiscovered waves and end up finding more than they bargained for. Their adventure takes a turn for the tense as they encounter cannibals, discover human rights atrocities and expose an unethical mining corporation. Already being lauded as Endless Summer meets The Cove, this visually stunning film brings to light one of the least documented places on earth.

Official Selection: Santa Barbara International Film Festival; Byron Bay International Film Festival; San Diego Surf Film Festival; Newport Beach Film Festival; Maui Film Festival.

Special guest: Producer Geoff Clark will introduce their film on July 19 at 7:30pm. Director Justin LePera is unable to attend the screening as previously advertised.
