Director: Minna Dufton
Cast: Joana Andrade, Johanna Nordblad
Duration: 76 mins
Atop the imposing waves of Nazaré, Portugal (home of the 100ft World Record Wave), diminutive surfing champion Joana Andrade – aka the ‘tiny fighter’ – seems totally at home.
Further north, Finnish world champion freediver Johanna Nordblad is much more comfortable underneath the still, cold lakes she plunges into.
When these two women meet, in a moment of filmmaking fortuity, Minna Dufton’s empowering documentary evolves into a tale of strength, solidarity and the power of sharing.
