Splinters is the first feature-length documentary about the evolution of surfing in the developing nation of Papua New Guinea. In the early 1980s, an Australian airline pilot left a surfboard in the remote seaside village of Vanimo. Twenty years later, surfing is not only a way of life, but the only way out. The film, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, "follows four local surfers competing in the country's first national surfing competition, in the hopes their surfboards will carry them to a better life."

Splinters is currently playing in select theaters across the country - one of which is the historic Clinton Street Theater in Portland, Oregon. The film will be shown from Friday, February 17th through Thursday, February 23rd. Tickets are only $6. Additional information is available here.
