Sneak Preview

Bangladesh, 2021, 1 hour 25 minutes, Bengali with English subtitles


An inspirational story from the heart of Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. We witness the transformation of a group of teenage girls who join a local surf club and dare to dream big. Elizabeth D. Costa’s documentary captures the raw emotions, the family dynamics and the complex pressures of poverty on a coastline at the forefront of climate change pressures. Balancing the freedom of the waves with the restrictive realities of their daily lives, we experience the thrill and struggle of coming of age in a developing country. Not your average surf movie!
