After the succesful release of Onde Nostre back in 2010, he follows up with his latest movie entitled Peninsula, which traces back Italy’s surf scene to its humble beginnings. The documentary is entirely shot in 35 mm, 16 mm and Super 8 film, resulting in a vibrant collage that perfectly captures surfing’s laid-back spirit.
