PENINSULA – ITALY’S SURF SCENE
Italy's share of the Mediterranean Sea takes the spotlight in a new film about its local surf culture. Shot in 35mm, 16mm, and Super 8 film, director Luca Merli's Peninsula offers a sublime look into the magic and appeal that attracts a unique band of Italian wave riders. Be forewarned, however, this is the kind of scenery that will make even the most conditioned of 9-to-5 folk consider walking out of that cubicle in the pursuit of oceanic bliss. As it should be!
