ABOUT

L’Italia è un paese con una surf culture giovane: l’esplorazione, la ricerca di onde lungo le sue coste offrono ancora molte sorprese.

Peninsula è un viaggio di esplorazione da nord a sud, lungo le coste della penisola, in compagnia di alcuni tra i migliori surfisti italiani ed un paio di ospiti internazionali di fama indiscussa: questo è il mezzo che abbiamo scelto per raccontare un paese, le sue coste, il suo mare e la sua gente.

Girato tra il 2011 e il 2013 principalmente in16mm, 35mm e Super 8 PENINSULA è un freedom collage di surf, mare, ecologia e la storia di questo sport nel nostro paese e i suoi protagonisti.
